Zidane believes in the expressive and gestural power of the image itself, and for this reason, his abstract paintings exemplify the encounter of form as a mass with color in a physical environment. His paintings are poignant, emotional, and filled with the existential anxiety that represents life in its physical and moral existence. It blends the properties of physical matter through molten and vibrational manipulations of liquid color with states of human perceptual existence in a unique environment.
