|HIGHLIGHTS, THE OLD PORT OF MARSEILLE
American Center, Marseille
Play of light and reflections in the Old Port of Marseille, its multicolored buildings and boats form and transform into exotic shapes and brilliances across a rippling sea.
|THE BRIDE UNVEILED
American University Center of Provence
Coyishly enticing elegance, the petals of these white tree peonies, like layers-upon-layers of a bride’s crinoline gown…
The play of light and perspective offered by the glamorous billboards and shop windows on the streets of Paris - magical scenes both in their seductive beauty and in the fact that they are not PhotoShop productions, rather, they are accessible for all … who take the time to see.
|SIGNS OF AMERICA
Les Etats-Unis d’Amérique Invités
20th Annual Literary Exhibition of Fuveau
sponsored by the American Consulate of Marseille
American Center, Aix-en-Provence, France
What was the climate of the nation that Barak Obama, inherited? A revelatory documentary shot in 2007 – 2008 during my travels down the Pacific coast, then later across seven New England states. These “Signs” recount a time of fear and disruptive change; an America in conflict with itself, hoping for resolution.
Ojo del infinito azul
Muestra International d’Arte
Starting with a pair of lips, vast as the sea is blue – true, it could be a kiss – then opening into eyes, windows of the soul, a rich & diverse palette of azure, wide as Cezanne’s Provencal skies.
|L’ALCHIMIE DU REGARD
Arte sin Fronteras
AIA Association Internationale d’Artists
L’Alchimie du Regard
City Hall of Paris, 9th District
Beautiful, tragic, glamorous, terrifying… advertising’s eyes, powerful in their ability to seduce, luring our attention, conditioning our minds, blinding us with their imposing vision of an ideal. But wait! With a bit of imagination, like alchemists, we are free to see differently, transmuting images of manipulation into objects of wonder.
Librairie Gallérie Racine
Where is the line between art & experience? Where does fantasy end and reality begin? A couple, dancers, improvising a dialogue in the language of motion, in front of a painted architecture; their bodies painted too – Movement distorts, our perception shifts, so we may perceive ‘between’.
Existence is an open book, each page is blank, waiting for our lives to lay down the words. Each person, a poem… Each of these images offers the framework of a story, an invitation to fill in the details of a life, hinted in the intimacy of a total stranger.
