    11 SEPTEMBRE : "LE PRIX DE LA LIBERTE" = SEPTEMBER 11"THE PRICE OF FREEDOM" 

     

    Third of a quadriptych

     

    This Painting is a work honoring the victims of the attacks

    of September 11, 2001 in NEW YORK.

    This is a changing living colors painting  depending on the light and angle of viewing.

    This is a painting with oil and done with a knife, except the bottom which is made with acrylic paint. Some drawing is painted with chinese ink with a part of the relief covered with gold and silver leaf.

    In order not to restrict and close the visual field and to leave an open mind, I voluntarily chose not to frame my painting.

     

    This is a painting with double vision in which you can see many of symbols to interpret.


    This painting represents how this attack impacts on freedom has shaken its foundations and the fragility of this freedom. People have less fredom since the SEPTEMBER 11 attacks. Although NEW YORK continues a “normal” routine life, individual freedom has been eroded, people have much less freedom than before.

    Freedom has lost her fundamental values. I symbolized this crumbling unstable freedom by the representation of the statue of Liberty flowing into the sea behind the city and the statue of Liberty in the foreground that is beginning to disintegrate itself.

    This is a very expressive painting.

    In this painting, I show the Statue of Liberty crumbling like a brittle and ephemeral trophy.

     A freedom that loses its symbol.  

    The choice of grey as a color for the city is very symbolic beacause after the fire/injuries, there are ashes/scars but after ashes/scars, we can have hope for a new life and strength to carry on.
