The initial themes Landscapes, Sea-, Sky-, Waterscapes later replace Innerscapes and again and again abstract subjects that reflect moving and spatial events (Compositions, Mouvements, Variations, Éclats, Espaces) as well as impressions that come from nature or end up back with it (comme la nature, nature - resuscitée).
Some works like have references to music and his compositional work.
