Olivier in Blue
© 2017 | Oil on Canvas
Dr. Olivier Bricaud is a scientist who I have the honor of working with at Thermo.
Genuine and insightful, his thoughts and comments quickly get to the heart of the issue. His inherent sense of humor keeps us grounded as we push and pull the machine.
Observing him in meetings, he would intently focus on the conversation – nodding and thinking. Only after the meeting had ended would he serve up his opinion – which often was the perfect summary of the issue at hand.
Olivier was the first portrait to be finished for Six Citizens. I wanted to speak to his inquisitive nature within a tangible ruggedness. I hadn’t yet figured out how I wanted to proceed – and working through his piece, I uncovered a path.
