Claudine Belmas Gregoire

Painting on canvas : first and foremost, there is the obligation of the gesture, the impetus that propels me to deposit, connect, build with colour. The reality : a process of perpetual shift of colours, proportions, while taking the precaution of not touching one’s subject too closely. There are incidences which occur between the canvas and myself; encounters between those painted incidents and the eye of the viewer. The imagination: the joy of living, the concrete for the expanse of things, and painting through what one sees, a little of what one thinks. And also – The Mythology: inventing how …

Art in Focus – Richard Mas ART

All about art – before getting involved with I Love Cannes – my knowledge of art was very, very limited. Yes I did know about the Picasso’s etc of this world – and yes I do appreciate a good bottle of wine, sunsets etc – can they be considered as art? Well I guess so – from what I gather art is in the eye of the beholder and definitely a heart/soul feeling. Each of us has our own favourites & styles. The Cote d ‘Azur – is defiantly a magnet to all artists and art lovers – you just have …

Artistes du Monde Cannes

What an amazing encounter  and what an even more amazing exposition… which takes place every year in September coinciding with the Royal Regate Yacht dates – and this year being the fifth consecutive year in a row. Have you ever walked by an Art Gallery and never stepped in, as in my case? Either because there was no-one else in, looked too expensive for your pocket, or simply art sitting around on its own. Perhaps too cold and impersonal and when you do step in ….no real explanation about the artist – apart from some brief history ? What I want …
