UNDER THE RAIN THE MOUNTAIN SINKS – sold
For Nicolas de Staël, the distinction between abstract and figurative doesn’t make much sense, as he has sought to blur the lines and walk on the border. I looked a lot at his work for this series.
This border is interesting to me. When does the painting stop being abstract to become figurative? At what point does it represent something? What makes us refer it to something other than itself ?
This gouache below arrived on one of those mornings after the rain. It’s as if the mountain was just coming out of the shower. It seems washed, rested and soothed. The clouds and the mist change its structure and hide its crests and relief.
This piece belongs to the autumn series consisting of daily painting the view from my breakfast table in Ardèche.
