Original artwork description:

AVAILABLE FOR SHIPPING AFTER 6th JANUARY 2024. The painting will be exhibited at Arteam Cup Prize in Savona, Italy, from 25th November 2023 to 6th January 2024.

This painting was born from a reflection on the relationship between entertainment and environment. I happened to observe more and more often that in moments of leisure or vacation people try to have as many activities and services as possible available, without taking into account their seasonality, even at the cost of living in an artificial environment and having a tenfold energy impact (recreational pools in the middle of winter, cold sheds with ski slopes inside in summer, etc.) Hedonism without limits, with uncertain judgment criteria. This is why I represented a swimming pool in the middle of a winter landscape, surrounded by strips of artificial grass that try to cover the snow and on which two small hens move among the fake blades of grass.

The mountain represented is mount Mondolè (2382m) in the Maritime Alps, around which stands the ski area where I started loving the mountains for the first time as a child.

Final varnish, signed certificate of authenticity.

Materials used:

Oil colors, cotton canvas
