Red forests

The  expedition in the Amazonian forest  inspired a series of paintings that I have developed over more than 10 years, depicting forests made only in shades of red. The red jungles evoke a nourishing, enveloping nature which can be powerful and even violent.

Deprived of its green color, it also appears amputated and vulnerable.

Like in many of my later works, this series offers a double reading in which an apparent poetry and formal beauty mask the disturbing reality of an endangered ecosystem.
