When I started to be influenced by the "dérive"
Mindscapes on canvas, Aix-en-Provence, France
This is the journey through an urban landscape, on which aesthetic contours of the surrounding architecture & geography
direct me to encounter an entirely new introspection.
It includes both this letting-go and its contradiction: the domination of psycho-geographical variations
by the knowledge & calculation of their possibilities.
During the time of life change between France & New York, I dropped my relations, my work, my leisure activities,
& all my other usual motives for artistic creation & ambition.
It is not a planned process. I am still on the path of my own "dérive" started in Spring 2015.
