Clouds, like the sea, are immutable although always changing.
Since the beginning of humanity they populate our imagination like the sky above our heads. If we raise our eyes towards them, we can feel this community of gaze, ancestral, the link beyond time and space.
Their call is irresistible. Sometimes they animate the sky with immense and moving architectures, sometimes they veil it or desert it. Clouds determine our mood.
Elusive and changing, they capture and transform the light, offering a spectacle that one cannot get tired of. Their infinite variations sometimes offer us a combination so exceptional that it seems divine. The cloud is also an object of meditation: breath and fleeting form, like the subtle and vaporous materialization of a soul.
This exhibition brings together works by fifteen artists from the gallery.
Some have found there a major axis of their creation such as Jean-Baptiste Née who paints in the mountains, a recurring subject (Yamamoto Masao whose subtle art of gaze often turns towards the sky, Michael Kenna who stages their movement so well … ), or simply an inspiring encounter (Gilbert Garcin, Françoise Nuñez… ).
