the water meets the skyThe show offers an assortment of paintings, dating from 2007 to 2017 .The paintings themselves seem to be of three distinct styles, with the space grouping each series separately. One of Courcelles' series is reminiscent of 19th-century impressionism with Monet's daffodils and Van Gogh's sunflowers.In Courcelles' "bleus" series, the lake, floral motifs and the color blue are still points of reference but the depiction is much more abstract.The flowers are surrealistic, and the colors are brighter – almost monochrome, in simple shades of orange, green and yellow. These forms are spread throughout the painting.The painting is oneiric, with its peaceful, dreamlike blue, and reminiscent of childlike drawings.The styles of both series complement one another, and the viewer can clearly connect the two, but there is no such harmony in the third series, whose approach is more contemporary, defying the modern confines of the canvas.
