Stems was born in a plein air workshop in Mazirbe. Every day was spent surrounded by forest. In order to create, I had to observe the space between the trees, the relationship of light, the rhythm of the stems, the various configurations of the sky. Later, when you are in the forest, all those stems permeate you, whether you want them to or not. In this work, the tension is sensible due to the colour red, but the most important element of the painting is the relationship between the stems, the sky and the earth. 

Canvas, oil.
