I have always been fascinated by the paintings representing bathers. Picasso’s painting “The bathers” had left a strong imprint in my mind. Living on the coast in Brittany, I am also immersed in a maritime scenery. After finishing the series “Ne vois-tu rien venir?”taking place in the sea, I was still drawn to the sea but in another mood. Two women facing us smile and enjoy floating in the water. It is a moment of grace. Faint representation of fishes and boats surround them with a surreal sand castle in the background. I wanted to paint waves and swimmers, lightness of being and freedom of movement. From series "Dans le creux de la vague."
