To chase away Coronavirus and Racial Hate let me share some colours and a bit of humour.

Quoting what I said in the article about D.U.M.B.O  Diaspora that Dale Kaplan published in her webzine DUMBO DIRECT:

“I live fairly isolated in the French Country side near the Loire Valley, although I am aware of the distress that is happening all around the world, the Corona Virus has not had a huge impact on my daily life. I feel privileged and I often think of my friends in big city, especially NYC that has been hit so hard.

Because of the Corona my local hardware store has been closed, without material it has been difficult to work on large pieces, so since I could not do big I did small and I started making jewellery pieces with my colourful photographs. These pieces are more easily shared and in a way belong more to life than art meant to be hang on a wall.

I enjoy not hearing the air traffic in the sky which is about the only small noise nuisance we have here and at the same time I can’t wait to be able to get in a plane to visit my friends in NYC. “

As I started to make  jewellery I had the luck to be invited to participate in the  exhibition A BRAVE NEW FIELD  in Shanghai which will be showing a small group of talented artists making jewellery. 
Brave New Field - International Jewellery Exhibition will be open to the public from June 7 to September 1 at Shanghai Field of Rumination (BFC). Thank you for your support and participation in this exhibition.

From Shanghai to D.U.M.B.O back to France where I will have in the Fall a solo show at La Ritournelle Lieu d'Art in Chateauroux.

I hope you are all well.

Be safe out there !
