Nothing is perfect
until we accept sacred
thistles among wheat.
Chardons poussent partout.
Ils méritent aussi l’amour
comme tous nos ennemis.
Luke/Luc 6 : 28-29
Magnificent weed-free fields sway in the breeze. Herbicides do not reach the ditches, only the bodies applying them.
Le cancer tue mes neveux les plus jeunes. Quelque chose a changé ces dernières cinquante années à la ferme.

"We live in a fractured world. This chaos is evident in my work. In between the rivulets of paint and the textural accidents I choose colours and forms to suggest a landscape where beauty continues to reign. She is essential to the survival of humanity."
