"The violet dawn", oil and acrylic on stretched canvas, 35X27 cm
I've used bronze metallic color and oil, a color between violet and blue, for this mysterious landscape.
In Art, the landscape is a classical and vast subject, treated in all styles, from photorealism to abstraction, realism, gestural, impressionistic, figurative...
My series of landscape paintings is ultimately my most abstract one.
These distant paintings are "horizon" paintings. I paint the luminous meeting of heaven and earth. I represent a line, a separation, a boundary, something that exists only for the eye. As we approach the horizon, he retreats, escapes us. The horizon is inaccessible. This is why this line is both mysterious and symbolic. It is the symbol of the human soul, of its hopes, of its imagination.
These landscapes are often minimalist. They are evocations. These are obviously interior landscapes. I speak more about myself than in a realistic representation. It is an intimate cartography, which leaves the field free to the imagination. An inner reflection that opens paradoxically over immensity. The horizon makes us really plunge into the heart of ourselves. It puts us face to face with our own realities, facing our deepest beings. It touches, somewhere, the soul ...
The landscape, as I hear it, is not (or more) just a representation or an interpretation of reality. It is rather a spiritual, mystical journey... Shadow and light, Immensity, infinite...
For me, these landscapes are in balance on a fragile border between abstraction and reality. They are what has the most to do with humanity: they give to see the dream.
Horizons, undergrowth, from abstract to figuration, from night to day, from color to black and white.
Edges of the canvas are painted in black. This artwork is ready to hang.
