Multi media on canvas, 60×60
“This painting hides a face that I transformed over many studio sessions. I thought the work was finished, but the subject eluded me when I looked at it the next day, and I pursued it day by day, face by face, what was escaping me.
Then one day, turning the canvas upside down, I saw something, or rather several things, that I let come under my brushes until beings appeared who were advancing in a white plain, under a blue sky, carrying a canoe on their heads.
From this face, painted a hundred times, only an eye and half of the face remain. The subject was no longer the same, it became the “Journey of the Blue People”.”
