In September 2020 we moved to a village called Jouques, in the South of France. This series of paintings are all linked in one way or the other to our life in the inspiring region of Provence. I feel surrounded by Picasso, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Chagall, Matisse, Braque, Renoir, Le Corbusier… the list of artists that have lived or even died in this region is endless. Do they inspire me? I hate when they make you that question in contest. I have never been a person that “admires” others, after all we are all humans and therefore full of defects. That does not mean that I do not like or respect their work. And if I really had to choose one, I would only make an exception with Leonardo Da Vinci. But what I do admire is Nature and I find great inspiration on it. Well… I can fully understand why so many artists loved this region.
