SORTIE TEMPÊTE   30" x 30”   April 03, 2017   


I always loved the translucency and alternate clarity and cloudiness of jade--such interplay encased in a stone cold to the touch, but warm to the eye. Gently modulating, sun-tinted green, faintly reminiscent of Japanese temples, or moss seen through water, prevails here. The stripes are present but soft, and the composition finds a certain uniformity, and, thus serenity, for me.
