Painted shadows

Pretending to be a house painter, I completed in less than 4 hours an unpretentious  suite of B&W abstract paintings, using as canvas the doors of the Guardhouses on the corners of the Place de la Concorde in Paris.


I liked the idea that they may be a modern-day equivalent of the chapels of the Way of the Cross (Via Crucis), to be visited sequentially.

The paintingsare predominantly white with the black colour simulating a painted shadow.


This work was agreed with the contractor that was to start a full restoration of the guardhouses a few days later.
