All over, the nature

For this first drawing of 2020, I am trying to introduce and gradually move closer to the notion of ALL OVER in the representation of the natural landscape by trying to cover the entire surface without a hierarchy of plans.

Maybe to get closer to an immersive experience in nature?

While making this drawing, I listened to Kel Assouf’s album “Tin Hinane” (2011).
The fifth piece of this album particularly touched me: “Akaline“.

In Tamasheck, the language of the Tuaregs, “Akaline” means “My Country“.
Anana, the singer talks about travel, uprooting and the heartbreaking beauty of a landscape abandoned to desolation. The country sung by Anana is not only her country, but also ours.
