I like this art very much. The colours are bold, and the figures are so contemporary. Benedictine communities are also so welcoming!

I like the orange and yellow colors. The paintings look very African to me but I know Brother Yves is French.

Thank you for showing us these remarkable pieces of art, so "simple", modern, but clearly inspired by roman art!

Je vais te dire : frère Yves a gardé le regard et le talent de l'enfance...
Ses oeuvres sont composées comme on devrait composer les photos et à la fois sont toutes simples.
Très apaisantes
Le prêtre qui nous a marriés et baptisé nos enfants était père blanc et ensuite cistercien
Lorsqu'il a baptisé notre dernier fils, il était moine
Sur son visage sur son attitude se lisait une sérénité que je ne lui avais jamais vue
Et pourtant c'est un ami d'enfance.

I love these paintings. They are so colorful and peaceful at the same time. Thanks for introducing us to the works of Frère Yves. I look forward to seeing more tomorrow!

Interesting drawing style, but very nice. I love everything that has to do with Christianity anyway! The one drawing shows us the cross, it reminds us about what Jesus did on the cross for mankind.
Thanks for sharing.

These are wonderful, colorful yet stark, modern yet echoing traditional forms and themes. Thanks for showing us the work of Brother Yves.
