Continental Drift - Cecile Daladier 09
Painting by Cécile Daladier.
50.5cm x 50,5cm
Cécile refers to these paintings as “chestnut tree canvas”. "The print on canvases is due to the fact that I put these canvases under a tree during a Summer, they received the chestnut flowers catkins as they fell, they remained there for two months day and night, sun and rain, without any intervention on my side; it is related to raku in away, and in an other way to continental drift: the power of nature without us, prints or trace fossils as the testimony of a thing that happened..."
Cécile Daladier was born in Paris in 1955. She frst dedicated herself to music and later to the fne arts. For a few years now, the creation of vases and singular objects all linked to the botanical world has become her main feld of work.
