la lampe à pétrole...Lamp oil
oil on canvas
81 x 100 centimeters
This is the lighting of my childhood and adolescence. It is with the light and the smell of oil that I studied in my village, a suburb of St Denis (La Reunion) before leaving the island to study in metropolitan France, after high school.
These are my African forms where Picasso and Cezanne are found .... a mixed style of my first period 1965-1985
