Taking a small break from my « Windows of Rye Serie ».

There are two parts to Rye, the one built within the fortifications, the more historical side, with its church, castle and cemetery, and the one built outside of the fortifications, the more contemporary side, with its supermarket and train station.

The ultimate purpose of a door, I believe, is to warn of a coming change. Those that decide to walk through the door, are somehow informed that their perspective is going to change.

If one crosses a door and then turns around, their grasp of a place, might totally differ from what they previously thought they knew. They might find themselves in an other reality.

The wanderer took shelter from the storm among the rocks that hold the Color Compass. There are boats on the shore. He borrows one and slowly rows towards the South.

Arbres sur l’Herbe. 2017

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.

Le Mont Calme. From the 6th continent serie. 2015. J.Harms. Acrylic on paper. 10.5×14.8 cm.

The 6th continent depicts the imaginative side of my work. A land where my mind sometimes wanders.
