A technical glitch becomes my muse.


This project isn’t new.
In fact I have long been busy with it and still have a long way to go…
There are still a million details to refine.

The whole idea was a sheer stroke of luck.
Our printer was nearly out of ink and the result was this amazingly hazy, blurry work of art…
On paper.

A technical glitch became my muse.
Our printer, despite itself turned what could’ve been a more or less ordinary idea into a punch of genius.
In an instant it had taken a whole new dimension.

Today, looking so very closely, I continue detecting, along the work (which often needs a magnifying glass) so much movement in what appeared at first to be a soft, romantic, vague looking image.

This “failed” print I notice, is a host to so many nuances, shadows, blurry, ghostly, ephemeral expressions…

And it lies in every stroke of this ongoing project.
It is very precise, nothing is left to chance.

Yet, it would have gone unnoticed to my eye, if I wasn’t so busy with its minutiae.

Burano
Small village
Miniature
Of laces
And fishermen
Of bright sun
And vibrant colors

You locked away
Your best
Hidden secret
Your painter
Your genius
His talent

Our visit
This new acquaintance
This world
Barely scratched
The flash of a passion
For art
In its pure and raw state

Burano, village
Miniature
Of giant talent
Your secret
Is hidden
No more

De dentelles
Et pêcheurs
De soleil vif
Et couleurs éclatantes

Tu enfermes
Ton meilleur
Secret caché
Ton peintre
Ton génie

Cette nouvelle connaissance
Ce monde
A peine effleuré
L’éclair d’une passion
Pour l’art
A l’état pur et brut

Au talent gigantesque
Ton secret
N’est plus
Caché
