For the exhibition planned in the coming days in Langon, the spotlight will be on “ soft tones, with a burst of bluesto recall water.”

Why the water theme? “To raise public awareness of this essential element, precious for all living beings and therefore for life on earth,” replies the painter.

“Marked by the collapses linked to global warming”, the artist also wanted to create two paintings which illustrate the beauty of Antarctica’s glaciersvia “a transparency of lights”, with the desire to convey this message, that “we must strive to preserve these beauties of nature”.
