« Bélouve »: It is through immersion that this whole panorama explores the reality of an emotional landscape and refers to an experience where the only remembrances are the physical sensations and sensitive perceptions of the venue. The choice of this composition comes from the desire to open space and achieve a whole. A set that seizes and re-creates a landscape by sublimating, highlighting the emotions proper to the experience of place. Through this proposition, a sensitive relationship between the viewer and the “lived”, felt landscape is established. While questioning the traditional medium of landscape painting, “ Bélouve “ set a committed glance at the relationship between the fascination for exceptional landscapes and physical and emotional relationship perceived in these actual landscapes.
The art work "Bélouve" was acquired by the Contemporary Art Collection of the City of Saint-Pierre (Réunion island) in 2010.
