Significant work of the period of the 1970s. Ledannois switches into geometric abstraction, he simplifies its abstract forms but refuses just as manessier, rothko or poliakoff to express themselves with pure geometric rigor. As a result, its squares are never completely square, its rectangles never completely rectangles. His art always finds inspiration in the means used by nature to act on our sensitivity, especially through colors and their symbolic duality.
The depth is given by the superposition of the forms and the movement by the vibration of the juxtaposed colors. The choice of colors and especially the dark and ocher blues highlight a spirit of rigor, clarity and a desire to approach the imaginary in its most minute form. The paintings of Ledannois allow us to escape the spiritual aridity of our consumerist era.

This technique governed debray describes it perfectly in his essay "The art of painting begins with the choice of brushes, then by quick strokes, carefully the brush brushes the paper which is covered with color. The painter works by superposition and changes of brush with each layer.In the meantime he passes a dry brush to get out the grain and soften the first color posed in transparent areas.
