Lili Wood's exhibition

40 paintings exhibited from the Thursday 3rd February to the Tuesday 22nd February

With the unpredictable movement of the Breton wind, Lili Wood takes us on an infinite walk along beaches, dunes, coasts and wheat fields. As in a dream, we go from one environment to another, from spring to winter, from mild weather to storm, but always following a mysterious path whose destination is unknown. It is the force of the wind that decides, that pushes us, and guides us towards a direction rather than another. In his drawings as in his walks, the artist lets himself be guided. From the wind come chance and surprises, a path is established, each drawing gives the way to the next, like a secret game of chase between Lili Wood and the Wind.

A year ago, in March 2020, the artist exhibited here "Les Carrés de Cancale", with the sea in the foreground. In this new exhibition, vast and generous of about forty gouaches, Lili Wood draws the invisible, she draws the wind! This wind that manifests itself but is not seen, that digs the cliffs, sculpts the sea, rocks the trees, loads and unloads the sky.

A tiny and frail silhouette inhabits most of the drawings in this exhibition. Walking with her back to the wind in an immense and tormented landscape as if indifferent to the storm that is brewing.  Immobile in the contemplation of a landscape that we guess is breathtakingly beautiful. Or arms in the air, dancing in the wind. An almost mystical power emanates from this small, at first sight fragile and vulnerable character. His disproportionately large and long shadow resembles a totem, as if Lili Wood had chosen the allegory of the wind to represent the forces that lurk within us and that transcend us. another, from spring to winter, from mild weather to storm, but always following a mysterious path whose destination is unknown.
