About my watercolour work…
The Mediterranean sea is my main topic. I live near it. I contemplate it in all its states. I like to swim in its waters and walk along its shore.
Gaston Bachelard wrote in his essay on ” l’Imagination de la matière L’eau et les rêves” : “we dream before we contemplate. Before being a conscious spectacle, every landscape is a dreamlike experience. We only look with aesthetic passion at landscapes that we have first seen in our dreams.”
I try to get closer to this waking reverie, which is both soothing and bathed in light, through the balance between water and pigment, between observation and imagination.
Photography is the first step before drawing and then painting. That is why you will also find some photos on this website.
