Oil Painting - 81 X 100 cm- 2020

Two fragile universes gathered under the same sky for the time of a painting: the luxuriance of the Amazon which meets the aridity of the plains of East Africa.

Two women who face each other in all their majesty: the Guarani and the Massai wearing their traditional ornaments. Around them, wild animals, life companions that the two peoples were able to respect for a sharing of the environment in harmony.

 

Again, a canvas celebrating the beauty of women and the living.

A work that expresses a deep desire to preserve nature by taking example from these peoples who, although gradually yielding ground under the pressure of the Western world, remain examples to protect the soil from destruction of our contemporaries.

A work which magnifies women - and not men - to recall, without idealization, the incredible and unbearable violence of which they are also victims in these patriarchal societies.

Always the woman for the salvation of Man ...
