Geneviève Garcia-Gallo leads us through her paintings in the heart of the rustling of mysterious forests and along the transparent fluidity of streams, to the echo of our distant buried memories, when man and nature were close, in symbiosis. The pictorial material is rich, vibratory, alive.
Another “escheat” theme, where the artist speaks of a lost world, where time has suddenly frozen, the human being is totally present and at the same time eminently absent, stricken from his world by a breath of apocalypse where nature slowly tries to take back its rights.
The latest works “we must love tales” take us into a poetic, dark and nostalgic universe where transparencies and opacities, lights and shadows alternate. The narratives fly from image to image, they go from the portrait of a woman with palisaded eyes to a winter landscape with wild waters, on the swift wings of a facetious robin out of a box where our childhood memories.
