“Alpilles 2” is a contemporary drawing by Amandine Maria.
The Alpilles and its magnificent landscapes have inspired many artists, from Van Gogh to Alphonse Daudet.
In this “walking map”, Amandine Maria proposes a vision of cartographer and poetess. The drawing emphasizes the mosaic of landscapes so characteristic of this territory. Indeed we observe in detail the division of the landscape structures. Windbreaks, villages and built heritage, fields of vines and olive trees, hills, roads, alignments of remarkable trees. The picture thus cut out takes on the appearance of an abstract painting.
Amandine Maria adds textual comments that energize the drawing, like a travel book. “Islands and the river”, “the smell of the Rhone”, “down there the Crau”…
In “Alpilles 2”, the marriage of drawing, painting and writing, the association of ink and watercolor, result in a small jewel of a luminous painting that we have chosen to present in an oak rod.Discover the artist
