the blue cycle

Last updated on 17 March 2021

I have just finished work on another piece of art from the blue cycle. This is the fourth one. I gave this cycle a name. I decided that the name could be useful to sort out the artworks, even if only in my own head. To differentiate these very works from others. A kind of identification name. “Boulevards of Saint Tropez’. – why Saint Tropez? I have never been there, but I have pleasant associations. I remember this place from the French cinema of the 60’s and 70’s. Poland from the communist times was showing French cinema on TV.  It was very good cinema! In my memories I still see black and white frames of films with Brigitte Bardot, but additionally I put a colour filter on them from the real views I experienced on the azure coast.  This is how I created a collage of what I remember with what I only imagined. As a result, the painting brings to mind a coloured black and white photograph. I do not know if I will ever be in Saint Tropez. And if I will, how will this confrontation be? I know one thing, the world is not more so transparently blue for a long time.
