I have been invited to exhibit my work for the first time, in a gallery in Bordeaux. Its owner, Daniel Boulogne, is a remarkable man who has supported artists in various and amazing ways during his life, and I was honored that he accepted to lend me his walls for a month.
The space is small but wide enough to contain 7 of my canvas. I had them framed for the occasion, so that they look cute for their first night out ! In particular, the exhibition will showcase "Tears of joy in the garden of giants", a painting started in 2005 and that I finished only a couple weeks ago.
Lucky french-speaking persons could have a look at the wonderful press release that my friend Leila Joucla (who is a Doctor of Arts) wrote :
Press release - exhibition Zancan - 28.01.10 - 02.03.10
Though most unlikely to happen I'd be thrilled to meet one of the foreigners at the inauguration, that will be held on Thursday, January 28th at Galerie 22 Rive Gauche in Bordeaux, France !
This is a little video I've shot during a stroll in the city, the morning when snow fell, and stayed. This was something to catch absolutely since it much rarely happens here in Bordeaux.
I enjoyed capturing those moment in a contemplative way, and hope to do more of those in the future.
The music is from the ever wonderful Loreena Mc Kennitt, a track simply called Snow :)
