Paysages (Landscapes) Formats variés
What do we retain of a landscape we love? A moment that is outside of time, an atmosphere, the light, a silence… No matter where the trees, the rocks, the path or the clouds really are; more than just our eyes it is our whole body that is seeing, feeling, breathing and vibrating. Whilst a photo can only capture the appearance, our being perceives with every sense the expanse before us: the temperature, the density of the air, birds singing, the sounds of crickets and grasshoppers, the perfume of flowers, the scent of the plants, of the soil, the breeze coming up from the valley below, an echo, the rustling of leaves… No picture could treat so many different sensations, so here I have chosen to abandon images, to retain just the shiver of excitement, the invisible connection between all things.
Through gestures and colour, in a deliberate yet subtle calligraphy, I wanted to present the characteristics of the natural elements that make up the landscape: earth, stone, water, vegetation, trees, the sky, clouds… The written form of these different elements suggests a landscape, an energy, the breath of life that flows through and unites each detail, each part of this interiorized vision of nature.
