Fading Roses, 2022
“Nous souffrons d’un mal incurable qui s’appelle l’espoir. (…) Espoir que nos poètes verront la beauté de la couleur rouge dans les roses plutôt que dans le sang.” Mahmoud Darwich, Ramallah, March 2002
Fading Roses is a serial variation, with watercolor, on the pattern (theme) of the rose, and on red as the dominant color of this haphazard and uncontrolled process. The experiment prevail over the precision of the representation. Purpose is to consider how the contours of the flower (distinctive) undergo the blend of colors and water on paper. Nurture the non intentional gesture, the accident through which the drawing becomes color, the semantic slight occurs.
I present this series as an ensemble to insist on its repetitive and experimental nature.
