Friday April 5, 2024 - Ramon OTTING exhibition opening

Alain BENEDETTO, Mayor of Grimaud, the elected officials of the Municipal Council and Michèle Beddington are proud to present the new paintings by Ramon Otting as well as a sculpture.

In this new series of wildflowers by the Dutch painter and sculptor Ramon Otting (1969) it is about wild and loving nature and the way it takes its course. His inspiration for his wild flowers from Provence came like a Bengg! Suddenly it was the middle of summer and I was a child lying in a field of wildflowers completely fascinated by what I saw and heard: the colors, the beauty but also a jungle full of the buzzes and crunches of little crickets and insects which reproduced, ate and in turn were eaten'" Annejet van der Zijl (Dutch Author).

Everything happens in the landscape and as Ramon Otting says; I love transferring nature's behavior onto canvas.

Being able to paint like this is like merging with nature although there is always the feeling of shaping the image. But of course this is never achievable and can only happen in nature. Sometimes we go too far and we fall. Then you have to stop. In fact it is the search we can never truly achieve the perfection of nature. We will always be confronted by our flaws and our insignificance.

But before us humans perseverance is the road to the goal.”

Exhibition at the Maison des Arcades from April 7 to May 28, 2024.

Opening reception on Friday April 5, 2024 at 7:00 p.m.
