Leroy said he painted in order to find the original emotion, that is, what occurred between him and his model, a strong sensation that was rebuilt and structured. A strong sensation that came from chaos, from pain, and moved towards the bearable. The painting is a kind of a theatre of his relationship with the other.

In that sense, these paintings are reminiscent of Georges Bataille's texts which reveal our insatiable desire to merge with the other, our perishable individuality and the fullness of horror and joy.

Leroy said he wanted to bury the painting's narrative, almost to shatter it, in order to see through it and beyond it. By tearing apart resemblances, the artist produces some harrowing resemblances, creating paintings that are shy and savage at the same time.
