Yearly self-portrait with noren. 2018 Categories self-portrait, self-portrait Post date June 9, 2018 Comments 2 Comments 29x39cm. Acrylic on red paper. Le portrait de cette année à été particulièrement difficile à peindre. J’en ai jeté plusieurs. Il y 10 ans je suis partie au Japon pour travailler.C’est lors de mon séjour à Nagasaki, que j’ai trouvé mon langage artistique.C’est là-bas aussi que j’ai commencé à acheter de l’art et de l’artisanat local. Le noren dans l’arrière plan, en est un exemple. This year’s portrait was more difficult to paint than the previous years. I painted and discarded several before finally painting this one. Ten years ago, almost to the day, I left France to go to Japan, where I lived and worked for a year and a half.It was a tough yet rewarding and meaningful experience. It was there that I found my artistic language among the many colors and lines of the cityscape of Nagasaki.While living there, I got to witness traditional holidays, and seasonal events. I also visited craft shops, I began collecting art too, and sent home many things, like this noren, a detail of which I painted in the background. It now hangs in my bedroom.
