There is an exercise that most painters do some day: a painting about life.
Burnt matches are personal events that have occurred in the past but enlighten who you are now. There is no flame to the candle, however, light is emanating from the vibrating gathering of the burnt matches. The personal qualities of a soul are made up of many little actions, thoughts and experiences that happened long ago and build up one's life glow. Many opportunities are still awaiting proper use, as matches ready to burst into flame. We may just need to take them one by one, day by day. We could contemplate with remorse the lost ones, the piling up of the scorched debris of our life, but it is too late. Some memories are simply pleasant, some are greatly satisfying, and our modest candle illuminates the darkness of infinity.
The Artist : Pierre Marcel Saint-Clair-sur-Epte
I paint in cultural and ecological expressions, so not just in simple "Contemporary Art" Since my youth a sincere worker of intense, positive, figur'active arts, I have worked every day in my art for forty five years and even to whole worlds (France, USA, Russia).
My best paintings are still available at ST Clair.
My public workshop is at La Salle du Prieuré, 3 place Rollon, 95770 Saint Clair sur Epte. It is the historic Ile-de-France village of the creation of Normandy, during the 911 peace treaty with the Vikings. This is how I promote this peace treaty, and constantly realize (by paintings, sculptures, decorations, frescoes, Land art installations) links between the 3 regions where I am an artist in this valley of the Epte , this crossroads Île de France, Normandy, Haut de France ...
Video https://youtu.be/uMHJz8t8N0Q (30 minutes) showing for several years my public activities as a social artist.
Volunteer activity of course, because the cultural administrations of the regions in France I bring them together in sympathy, I am an activist of Peace, of the inter-social. (I am also an American citizen, having started my career for 22 years in Miami-Beach, Florida, having participated in saving the Art-Deco area of Miami-Beach)
I am interested in social news (culture, news, ecology etc ...) and local cultural heritages. This is how my figurative-conceptual painting and my “land art” and “Streets-art” installations present the artist as a possible useful and pleasant actor in his contemporary society. My Land Art and my figurative-conceptual painting style are therefore actions of public F IGUR'ACTIF style arts.
