" Sealed Light" The " Instant lights " * of Tarkovsky are like his cinema : a " Sealed time " * for ever. Persistent memories : of a shot on a film, of moments stolen to childhood, buried in each of us, of ghosts from another world ... Creation from this fixed emotion: this is what prompted me to start this series of paintings . Working on freeze frames and photos, I wanted to carry on this motionless story-telling. The resulting creation is both the key and the window of the first story , as well as an imaginary time : a kind of modern icon blessing not a being but a world , a vision, a scream. The picture becomes consequently an extension of the artist, whose narration I borrow , and who finds his echo in me . Cinematic, photographic and pictorial arts, connected - "religere" in Latin - by a reinvented thread : the one of the sacred , of the intangible part in all things. This link also appears in the introduction of a short watermark text. These words , reflecting the subtitles which are displayed on the screen like on glass , enable me to recreate " my shot " my " cinematic and pictorial instant" ... * Collection of photographs and Writing of A.Tarkovski
