"This 'space' can be found as a constant in these Fragments or Passages, these Lateral or Angular, which have been giving rhythm to Bitran's work for ten years. Like others, a century or more ago, removed the anecdote in order to find the path of pure painting, here any reference to an analogy melts into the structure, disappears under the composition. But, just as drawing is never completely erased or submerged, the geometry of rigorous lines and planes that advance like an implacable bow tearing through space are answered by elements of modulation, of vibration that melt balance and create harmony".
Jean-Dominique REY, Preface to the catalogue of the exhibition at the Louis Carré & Cie gallery, 1987
