One, two, three, four, five
Meet each other on the same road
Taking cues from
The world of Nature:
A toolbox
Brimming over

Nature invites each artist to choose
A path
With sincerity, humility
Nature makes us slow down
And listen
The chaotic world
The cyclic world
The Four Seasons

With Kathranne
We share her solitude
We draw with her the thread, which brings us from wave to wave
And we weave like the spider
The endless sky

Valerie is taking us back
Slowly to her fairyland where roots entangle our eyes and mind
The spider keeps walking

Lucas spends his time with old friends: the trees of Los Angeles
From the west to the east coast, we see their portraits, their posture
We walk beside them
We remember Giotto's, Cezanne's, and Van Gogh's

Lori like a spider has captured us in her web
Made of meanders, endless captivated gardens

And Katia brings us in a reconstructed world
The tree is not a tree anymore
The leaf is not a leaf
What are they then?
Let's play with your imagination!

Nature doesn't hide anything from us
Nature is you, me, here and there and everywhere
You entered the world of Freedom
Leaving behind you any attachment and jealousy
Nature doesn't cheat
It beckons the artist to embrace its mystery with pleasure
Its joy and its power wait in the shadows, ready to burst
