This is, for me, one of the most a very significant things, walking in the woods, near large mature pines. The smell of pine thorns, you know what I mean?
Spicy. Exquisite smell too. At least, it is my personal translation of what I can describe in my words this magical smell. And at those moments, my memory always propels me into my past.
The great old Oak.
When I was a child, at that time, I gave myself a mission, let’s say it like that, LOL. Those to build a wooden shack in the trees. Behind my house was a beautiful large forest.My favorite activity, after spending the day at school, was to explore this forest, to know it from top to bottom, and to find the best place, the best tree, to build my little hanging castle. After a while, I found myself facing a very large oak, surrounded by tall pines. This oak was gigantic in my eyes. I had spent a lot of time, to my delight, and I had not found a better place to invest my efforts. And I knew I would spend most of my time at this magical place.
Great good to me, it was good. It must be said that the forest, for me, makes me feel peaceful, and even if one seems to be alone among these trees, all animals and birds bear witness to their presence, and I feel enveloped, comfortable and welcomed by these mysterious domains.
Anyway, I’d finally found the perfect place to start my big project. While building my dwelling among the big branches, the smell of thorns of pines on the ground, all around me, was very pleasant to me.
All this to say that Yes, I was very proud to have been able to build my wooden hut surrounded by squirrels, rabbits and several types of birds. But the smell of pine thorns is what I still have of this experience.It always followed me there after…
Then this artwork, Le Vieux Pin, evokes to me this experience. Thus, the artwork being the very extension of inspiration and the artist’s passed experiences, like all my paintings in my Bronze Series , Le Vieux Pin is painted with metallic tan brown colors. The olive green is the dominant color and some variants of orange-red illuminate some places of the artwork. The pine cones, my little jewels designed, are of a green-lime deviating towards the blue.
One of the characteristics of the artistic style that I practice is to exploit colors in a wide spectrum of tones in order to make the dominant color, for example, with greater depth and greater richness. Light is an important actor that interacts with the metallic effects of the artwork and gives a different atmosphere in different situations.
