L’Exposition “Moi-je” de 2015

August 28, 2015 in ART

🇫🇷 L’exposition 2015 de Mayke à la Galerie Sens Intérieur est d’un grand cru, c’est un retour à son expression intégrant l’abstrait et le figuratif, travaillant texture et profondeur avec une perspective qui lui est propre qui me rappelle certains de ses tableaux de la période Port Grimaud.

If the “yacht” notion took us back to our blue water sailing days this time the waypoints were more constrained, beginning south of Tampa Florida across the southern states to Big Sur south of San Francisco.

About me

March 22, 2009 in About me

I paint from a passion to get to know who and where I am.
I once had a dream, I was on stage giving a brilliant performance.
At the end, I noticed that the curtain had been closed during the session.
I want to open that curtain and share.

Je peins, mue par la passion de découvrir qui et où je suis.

A la chute, je remarque que le rideau est resté fermé.
Je souhaite l’ouvrir et partager
