Since the natural area between Marseille and Cassis was classified as “The Calanques National Park” in 2012, the sublime landscapes of our coast have become more and more famous throughout Europe, and have been attracting  many tourists and hikers, making the Mediterranean ecosystem around our beautiful Phocean city even more vulnerable.

It is both the strength of the coastal panorama and the fragility of the area along the sea that hold my full attention. As a painter, I would like to leave a record of these places, whether it be the limestone cliffs of Devenson where scopoli and leukopoeia gulls nest, or, some emblematic buildings which have been destroyed to allow free public access on the coastal paths: cabanons in Maldormé cove, Calypso restaurant on Les Catalans beach, etc.

It is the beauty of these seascapes in constant metamorphosis that I try to transcribe in my pictorial creations and which will be visible at the Tourist Information Office and the Theatre of Eden in Senas, from July 10 to August 27, 2019.
