Get back to basics

Reproduction on acrylic of the artwork Illusion du lignum d'Isabelle Gosselin

For me, the most important thing is what nature offers us. Shelter, resources and food. What's good for animals and has been good for humans for millennia is still good for us today. Only, we've lost touch with the basics, always seeking to improve our comfort, to make our lives easier with intelligent devices, multiple accessories that each have a specific function.


I've had enough of all this. Don't think I want to give up all my comforts, far from it. I just don't want a smart home that disconnects me from who I am. I don't want underfloor heating that doesn't make me appreciate the richness of winter. I don't want any more appliances and accessories that I don't even use and that, in the end, clutter up my physical and energetic space.


The more (un)useful objects we create, the more we dip into the already depleted resources of our beautiful planet, and the more we pollute because repairs are outdated. Intelligence is disposable, there are no spare parts.


For me, beauty lies in simplicity. The beauty of a falling leaf, a passing squirrel, my gaze meeting that of a deer on the side of the road. To continue on the path of consumerism is to lose oneself in an artificial world at the expense of the natural. It's disconnecting ourselves from our essence, while letting our beautiful forests disappear, even though they're essential to the survival of each and every one of us, whether we have 2, 4 or more legs, skin, wings or scales, whether we're an animal or a plant.


Beauty is also the emotion generated by a work of art, by its particular colors or the subject painted by the artist. A work of art is the very essence of its creator, just as a forest is the essence of life. A work of art is a beauty that endures over time, while nature is a beauty that evolves over the course of days, seasons and years.


This desire to free myself from everything I deem useless allows me to anchor myself even more firmly to my life's mission of reforesting the planet, one reproduction at a time, 2 trees at a time. Quite simply, to multiply art and living things.

Curious about the work demonstrated in pictures? It's Illusion du lignum - Isabelle Gosselin, which, reproduced on white aluminum, looks great in a décor.
