L'Arbre de Feu by alexandre-deschaumes L'Arbre de Feu by alexandre-deschaumes
[fr]

" .. Lorsque je ferme mes yeux, aujourd'hui encore, je vois ce mélange de demi teintes flamboyantes orné de branchages sinueux et incompréhensibles ..

Tout m’apparaît comme un mélange de formes et de teintes très abstraites, cette vision me fascine et me guide ..
Même si je n'y arrive pas encore comme je l'aimerai vraiment,
c'est en restant suggestif sur cette projection déstructurée que j'arrive à mieux apprécier.

Et j'ai voulu retranscrire cette sensation comme sorti d'un songe

Cette image comme toute la série sur la forêt est probablement ma préféré de ce que je ramène de ce périple, Elle est aussi un bon exemple pour ce que j'appel "vision onirique et évocatrice de la nature " . et j'ai en même temps conscience qu'elle plaira moins que les vues de montagne.Seulement pour moi il est plus impalpable et difficile de trouver des compositions comme ça , que de prendre le décors impressionnant , qui est déjà beau par lui même .

Les forêts deviennent magiques mais pas particulièrement apaisantes .. Plutôt denses ou complexes ...et semblent abriter une lourde peine insondable . Je n'arrive pas encore à mettre des mots sur ce que je ressens dans ces endroits

C'est une sorte d élégance torturée ...

[En]

...When I close my eyes, still today, I see this mixture of blazing half-hues
ornated with sinuous and incomprehensible boughs...

Everything appears to me as a blending of shapes and very abstract tints, this vision fascinates me and guides me...
Even if I still don't succeed as I really would like to, it's by remaining evocative on this destructured projection that I can appreciate it more...

And I wanted to retranscribe this feeling as out of a dream.

This image, like the whole series on the forest is probably my favourite from what I bring back from this expedition.
It is also a good example of what I call a "dreamlike and nature evocative vision". And at the same time I am aware it will not be as successful as the mountain vistas. Except that for me it is more intangible and harder to find compositions like this than to take the impressive scenery, already beautiful by itself.

The forests become magic, but not particulary calming... Rather dense or complicated... And they seem to shelter a heavy and unfathomable sadness. I am not quite able yet to put words on what I feel in those places.

It is a sort of tormented Elegance.

Cette image est un comme poème ...tellement remplie d'émotions presque palpables, de mots et de souvenirs. C'est vraiment unique.
J'aime vraiment comment on peut voir au-delà de ce qui occupe l'image et j'aime beaucoup tout ce que vous faites.
