Once upon a time... every painting starts like this or maybe should.
Sometimes I am nostalgic about colors, or format should I say.
I always enjoyed Western movies. I need to be specific so that you can see the different dimensions it takes me to invite you.
So a little about cinema history, spaghetti western, most of these movies were using the technicolor process.
Technicolor. / (ˈtɛknɪˌkʌlə) / noun. trademark the process of producing color film using superimposing synchronized films of the same scene, each of which has a different color filter, to obtain the desired mix of color.)
The use of this technique gives this saturation of colors by superposition.
Simultaneously, I have vivid memories of the narrative and director's choices: minimal frames, the rhythm in sequences, camera positions, pace between landscape, characters, and music.
Inspiration can come from unexpected places, right ?!
Now, what if I adapt this perspective to my vision?
Well, I tried.
The approach is minimal, as a glimpse between blinks.
We often underestimate the silence, or breathing in painting, which I truly enjoy in Western movies. This is how you create momentum or suspense.
As an Abstract landscape, The painting is taking place in the west, you can hear a rolling hay, see a blinding light, and follow the movement around.
I am not really interested in painting realities, yours or mine. Visions and utopian worlds seem more relevant in our reality.
We sometimes need just a different perspective to look back and move forward.
