Planting FOREST while awaiting the eagles’ return is an image of the future economy.
FOREST is, in and of itself, a living, vibrationist work. It was proposed tangentially to the pictorial research into polyphony, and its aim is to propagate the growth of natural forest, with the help of humanity. As such, the project produces forests, stories, photographs, films, paintings, and installation performances.
Adhering to the collaborative tradition of painting, the FOREST questions accepted truths, and brings the spectator into this debate. As the heir to all art, this living piece can be seen as the ultimate work of love between nature and humanity.
From a purely pictorial point of view, FOREST is akin to Claude Monet’s undertakings in Giverny, where he planted his garden before painting it.As an objet d’art, FOREST is a work of ‘inspired botany’; the continued transformation of the Sintra forest and the Park of Pena in Portugal, a botanical forest planted in the 19th Century by King Ferdinand II of Portugal, who was nicknamed the Artist King.Today Sintra forest is renowned for its positive environmental impact. FOREST is a continuation of this same spirit.
The painter is dead. I just want to plant a forest
