Jacques is the most extroverted of all the characters. A musician at heart, he likes going out in search of human contact, puffs of oxygen and especially to avoid the other three characters. He is currently the most spontaneous, colourful and active of them all, though this tends to change...
Bernard is a sensitive and profound being, with a philosophical spirit. He spends his time in contemplation of existence, cycles and seasons. With his friend, solitude, he sometimes howls at the moon and brushes against depression… But when after a long hibernation an idea arises, it sends him exploding with the energy of an Icelandic volcano towards the canvas.
More Cartesian, Eric, is drawn to the logical and structural world. He conceives painting only as constructed abstraction. While waiting to see his dream of becoming a great abstract painter come true, he takes care of domestic and administrative tasks, such as the writing of this text. Eric can be arrogant, aggressive, very boring and often as melancholic as Bernard. He often smells bad.
Martin is more classic, if not for his taste for carrot biscuits. He complains a lot. His perception is limited and his artistic approach, too academic, yet he has a mischievous side that he presents here. He suffered a lot at school during his childhood but thanks to that he is a little more trained than others in his execution. Little imaginative, he steals away Bernard’s ideas, without him even realizing it.
Here's the first expo they did all together. Bernard's and Eric's paintings, one of each, are now in the museum's collection.
