The “Alice in San Francisco” Series

Since I moved from Paris, France to California thirteen years ago, I have been researching and painting the history of San Francisco and the Bay Area. As an art historian and artist, it was my approach to adapt to my new surrounding and learn the american way of life.

"Big City"  triptych Acrylic on wood panels 30"x10" $675

 How do we fit in, us, little people? Trying to do our best for our small insignificant lives in this large, always challenging, city by the bay...

In 2015 I started a new body of work called “Alice", in which I overlap the story of Alice in wonderland with the History of San Francisco and Paris to represent the schizophrenic state of these ever changing cities. Each painting of this series tells a piece of the story about our everyday lives.  In a sense Alice is you, me, anyone who lives or work in the Bay Area, Paris or any large metropolis and has to adapt or face its challenges.

I work in layers and use recycled and found materials like plastics, papers, metals. Waste that would take years to break down and disappear in a landfill.  I either print with this different materials or leave them in the work. The technical process applied to this series is inspired by the presence of the water surrounding the peninsula and the issues raised by the pollution produced by the city.

Painting Alice, a very recognisable character, is for me, a way to talk about all kind of subject matters, like being a working mom, an artists in the silicon valley, a homeowner in a real estate bubble and to keep it consistent. It also allows me to connect with the viewers’ childhood memories and make my narrative more personal. I absolutely love it when someone tells me there's something about my painting that he feels like he can identify with.
