“I am a French photographer artist, and I have the pleasure and honor to present a selection of my works in tribute to the spring, at the Washington Printmakers Gallery. The exhibition is an invitation to reconnect with joy, colors, poetry, and desire.

Spring returns, inviting us to take full advantage of what life can offer us, after the long winter period…When the sunny days are here, the weather brings out the colors of life! May is the month of renewal, beauty, and radiance! My artistic work focuses on highlighting aesthetics, shapes, textures, and colors: from black and white to pastel… from pastel to bright colors, and from simple shapes to more complex ones, to compose an abstract and dreamlike visual. This selection of works is like a bouquet of flowers from May offered to the public, an ode to the spring in a way!

The title of my exhibition comes from the French saying: “In April, don’t remove a thread (of your clothing), in May, do what you like!” The thread of April, which we cannot remove, reminds us that in the spring, gloomy days can still appear! The beautiful escape of spring comes fully with May, which finally tells us: do what you like, the sun is there! After the bad days, happiness comes! We can believe it!”
