The door 2019

The large outdoor installation, “The Door”.

The large outdoor installation, “The Door”. A slender iron structure frames the landscape, whatever it is, to testify that the natural scenery is already itself a “work of art” but could also become a door to infinite inner landscapes. The large stones, of the same color as the female complexion, are derived from the ancient material of creation of which they still retain traces.
The perception-vision of the installation varies according to the atmospheric conditions and the territory in which the work will be set up. After the rain, the reflections of the puddle enhance the continuity between sky and earth. Stones in the clouds or sky touching the ground ? Contemporary human being must be educated in the perception of themselves in relation to the Universe to discover the fragility that underlies existence.

Vulnerabĭlis 2019

[from the Latin vulnerabĭlis, derivation of vulnerable “vulnerare “] We are nature.
Within every living and non-living being there are still the echoes of creation. In an infinite cycle of birth transformation and death our union and resemblance with nature is consumed.
The open stone shows all its vulnerability and surprising analogy with the shades of female skin.
Do the hands of a little girl take care of the stone or do they want to turn the gesture into an offering? It was from the Anthropocene. A nature as sacrificial victim on the altar of human selfishness?

Synthèse visuelle. Nymphéas, paysage d’eau, le nuages 2019

Synthèse visuelle. Nymphéas, paysage d’eau, le nuages is a contemporary work inspired by the Water Garden that Monet built in Giverny and the water lilies that constitute the final, if not absolute, culmination of his artistic development.
It is composed of 308 wooden tiles, painted en plein air around the Giverny pond .The reflections on the liquid surface have become a wide range of harmonious shades of grey-green-pink. The visual sensation of the sky and the vaporous movement of the clouds is suggested by the wood tiles of different thicknesses which, in the form-colour relationship, should allow the eye to overcome the geometric reading and stimulate a fluid and dynamic perception of the square space.
The work in fact represents an attempt to go beyond the surface of the canvas, in search of a new spatial dimension of the painting. A photograph “fixed” the moment when the transposition of natural elements into “colour” began.
