"The cathédral", acrylic on canvas, 81x60 cm
Although I am more of a flower painter, I also like to explore other subjects, always in a gestural style, such as abstract painting or architecture.
Painting modern cities or elements of historical architecture, it doesn't matter. These constructions are witnesses to the existence of human beings.
This piece is inspired by the French writer and artist Victor Hugo, and by his famous book "Notre dame de Paris".
This famous cathedral recently suffered a serious fire, but it remains a major element of our historical architecture.
The style of the Victor Hugo's book, "Notre Dame de Paris", is romanticism style, but the true one, dramatical, which is the antithesis of classicism.
This painting is made in a gestural, modern, spontaneous style. It's made with acrylic in an intuitive way. This painting plays with the pictorial language : colors, forms and shapes, graphism, lines.
Main colors are orange, mauve, turquoise...
The painting will be delivered signed on the front and on the back, ready to hang with a system on the back, with an invoice and a signed certificate of authenticity. Shipping carefully packed and tracked.
