November or Lili in the Garden. 2017. J.Harms. 29x39cm Acrylic on paper.

This is a view from my studio/bedroom. It’s late afternoon, the light is poor, but the flamboyant color of the dogwood is quite eye-catching, it brings a vibrant touch to this murky November day. Lili, my cousin’s daughter, is not afraid of the gloomy weather, she’s out and about doing what children like doing.

Leap of faith 2017

Leap of faith. 2017. J.Harms. 29x39cm. Acrylic on paper.

Once a year, around Fall, old churches in the neighbouring villages, mostly closed during the year, open their doors to visitors. So once a year, with family or friends, I drive around the fields of Picardie in search of these little gems.

Notre Dame du Lieu-Restauré is one of those. Walking around the ruins of the old monastery, I see children playing on the rubble. I take a picture thinking I could make something out of it. Later while checking the picture on my camera, I realise there is another interesting feature. A statue of a buddha, someone had put there. Bang ! I had a narrative !

Christine au blockhaus. 2017. J.Harms. Acrylic on paper. 50x40cm

That day in February, I walked along the large sandy beach of the Cap-Ferret, where WWII bunkers sit in the sand, awkwardly.  The Atlantic Wall is falling over, and the gluttonous sea is slowly eating it up. To me these bunkers are an other metaphor of time. I found them impressive on sight, almost dignified and at the same time weak. the coats of bold tags and graffitis making them almost welcoming. Oh the irony…

In Andernos, walking along the pier, a February sun bathing all those wandering by, a woman sits and meditates.

On  a bright sunny day, I was wandering around the streets of Andernos, when I saw this colorful little house sitting on the shadow of a tree.

Arbres sur l’Herbe. 2017. J.Harms. Acylic on papier. 29x39cm.

L’Herbe is a small village of the Cap Ferret practically on the sea. My friend and I stopped by this tiny fishermen’s dwelling while driving back to Andernos. Makeshift houses, all painted various colours, create a very picturesque scenery. The sandy pathways around the little homes were pretty desert, except for a couple well fed dogs probably waiting for their owners to come back from their fishing.
