Me and my son / IAN LEBIHAN-SANABRIA / 2015 SAN AUGUSTIN COLOMBIA.
14-18 RH (Ressources Humaines – Human Ressources) PAINTING
Is a serie of painting I have iniciate in January, due to heavy charge of work at the univiversity teachning Clase and creating purpose for the APROCIENCIA project. I just made few trys and paint a small one.
The subject is about the memory of my grandfather. He was soldier during the WW1, engaged in the conflict from 1914 to 1918 with the French Colonial Corp (Tirailleur Senegalais) as simple troop soldier. Was injured two times, participate in major battlle, La Marne, Les Eparges, Verdun, Chemin des Dames, he mostly was affected between those two areas Argonne, Craonne. He managed to survive the hell of the trenchs and became alive. I never met her.
Jean Francois Marie Le Bihan, born in 1896, married in July of 1919. He died peacefully in his bed at his own farm Kerurgan, Malguenac, Morbihan, Brittany, France, the 3 mars of 1953, father of eleven childs. In loving memory.
I am painting with oil, inbetween mirror and glass sheet, from photographic pictures of the places he was. I plan to make twelve paintings (via crusis) regarding of chronologic and where he was affected along the conflict. Also an important dimension for me it s have to keepin mind that close of a million soldiers bodies without sepulture (missing in action) are still burried in the red zone (total destruction area), smashed and melted in mud for ever… He survived, I am living, they died… A qui la faute? Messieurs Bonsoir…
Well as I have a lot responsability as fathers of three lovely childs, time for Art creation is close of absoltut zero. Anyway I have few stuff by there and a lto of pictures of amazing COLOMBIAN LANDSCAPE. Amazing place that I am sure u will appreciate, I hope.
This imagen was taken in 2010 during an holiday trip, to TAYRONA NATIONAL PARK in the carribeab coast of Colombia. It s an milenar sent made with huge granit rock by the people of Tayrona Nation, Caribe civilisation. This sent conducing from a settlement in terrasse to the sea shore. It was made during the first decade after the arrival of the Conquistador from Spain around 1530. Very lovely and quiet place include in high season, in fact most people prefere stay in the beach drinking beer than walk this way. If u have chance to came in low season, sure to be alone with the guardina (Cogui people in this place). And maybe have chance to observe wild life, as venemous snake, spider, Monkeys and if very unlucky the moutain tiger, King Puma, be carefull yes it s true, they are few specimens in this area can baddly hurt or simply kill and eat.
If u like strong sensation trip, u can arrive to Tayrona by sea, it s more impressive, cause u will the majestuosity and luxuriance of this wild place from a fisherman boat. From santa marta, go to TAGANGA, and ask fishermen to go by boat to Tayrona, around 2 > 3 hours depend of the sea roughness (beware can be really rough this case go by road), if sea is calm and flat it will be an very nice oversea sightseeing trip to the Tayrona Park, enjoy.
I plan using this imagen for make an digitaly insertion and modifying it, hope I will be able to show the progress of this project, as soon as possible.
Three years old and well surrounded by my two sisters, Armelle right and Gladys Left with love..
Not so much new stuff, in this moment, hard time, but as says this french expression ” Apres la pluie le beau temp”
Anyway it was so good to have few time to dedicating to preparing clay from the backyard and make a workshop with my daughters. It was pretty oriented to modeling some dinausors. I took an extra time and try to make a speedsuclpting in exactly 58 minutes for achieve as it is, COLOMBIAN VENUS, 20 cm high. Bien carnuda in the Fernando Botero moods, but with an archaic influence based on the WILLENDORF VENUS, well it’s not a replica, this is in the idea of. Also I make a a new receptacle for some orchids I got from my neighbour and they need a nice pottery to put them in. So instead of putting the orchid I put the VENUS58 as if it was stand up in a bath…
Same period same place 22 PASSAGE BRUNOY PARIS FRANCE. Here it’s a zinc plate 20×20 cm, dine with aquatinta, point graving and polishing to get highlighting. It was the last monce were I lived this neighborhood, one day I saw kids playing in the ruin, three of the sons of Monsieur Dialo. I told the higher to look at me with his two little brothers, and then I took a picture ( I don’t whre is the negative, but I guess I have, because I have a lot of care of them, other task have to do scanning it and insert the original).
It’s the last gravure I did at the ENSAD 1996 or 1997 don’t remenber exactly. Anyway hope so that soon I could make other one, just have a good PRPOSITO to do it… See you and thank s for watching.
