When I travel, especially when I return to France where I spent my childhood, I photograph the landscape - often without stopping, in passing. Later, in my studio, I paint inspired by these images. Nearly immobile, I paint these ideas of passage. I paint, here, the other country over there. I paint now what formed me yesterday. I look at the other side. Once again, I move across the space and time that separate me from my memories.
