In fact, your view of everyday life is more than the movement and digression through the spaces of the world, which are sometimes chaotic, it represents the plastic expression of a look that connects the intimacy of the interiors and the exterior, with a touch of naivety and tenderness. It is a crossing of time and memory of the painting of the great Masters as it is. the case of the work “Picnic”, inspired by the famous “Déjeuner sur l’Herbe” by Manet (1863). Plastic chords of great chromatic sobriety, the subtle presence of line, characterize in this set a poetic image of everyday life.
