5 imagesI was awarded a carte de compétences et talents, or artist visa, to create artistic work of a lasting nature in France. I live in a tiny, medieval village called Cabris, near the country's perfume center. These images are of, from and within the octagonal 16th century chapelle St-Jean-Baptiste, which inadvertently changed my life, literally, by "giving" me a deeper acceptance of my perspective, which includes an affinity with space and, therefore, my voice. Because it's closed to the public and I was curious, I asked to photograph the inside and when I went in, heard its amazing acoustics, its voice, and ended up composing music, recording CDs and going on a concert tour in France and the US this summer, The American Echoes Tour, an unexpected adventure. Though charming, the chapel is naturally dark and monochromatic; these show you how I experience it: colorful, full of joy, and connected to the flower world of Provence, its ubiquitous olive groves, and the village. The woman is the chapel's statue of Saint Cecelia, the patron saint of music. These images have been shown throughout the US concert tour and were part of our successful Kickstarter campaign to produce the CD, Les Audides.
26 imagesYou can order any image you like from any gallery on my site, of course! But if you're in a hurry or you are located near me in France and would like to see the art in person, I have these in physical form where they are their most gorgeous. It's a range of framed, unframed, fine art prints and posters, and various sizes. All work is signed.
