In “Papa #2” I wanted to emphasize the feeling of “loneliness” with a palette of greys, as a black and white room. Outside the window, colors are soft, kind of pastels, but vivid. It is may be a sky but it could just be a dream…Contrast between the outside world and the inside of the room. Inspired by my father, 93, who is living in a retirement home in France and cannot go outside. Tragic effect on the mind…
