Portfolio: 8. Pyrenees Orientales

Mediterranean Mountains

August Clouds Pyrenees Orientales

From a level foreground at altitude where farmland is in disuse one can see across the white ridges that form natural barriers to the walker. To the right the high valley of the Aude; straight ahead the Eastern Pyrenees exult in cloud form and summer aspect.

Vallespir

To the south beyond Canigou the steep and densely wooded mountains of Vallespir rise beneath a summer sky. Nature seems to take on the forms of its own will, the forms of its own heart's desire.

Roc Jalere

This rock with a hole in the middle seems to be an eyeless socket. The white flowers are ciste and the mountain beyond left is Canigou.

Above the Col du Paradis

The passage of the moon predicts snow. A large white mountain dog runs on the pathway between the trees of light and the trees of darkness. The deep sides of the rounded mountains plunge into the light of the world.

April Snow Canigou

Between the pillars of two mountain pine trees the view across sixty kilometres as the crow flies includes the Peak of Bugarach on the left and Cardou on the right.

Sougraigne

A small scale self-portrait beneath a street lamp, a pilgrim on his way. The church of Sougraigne between the sun and moon. A rose. An eagle. A donkey grazes at the side of a house. The sun crashes down. The moon rises into obscurity.

Dawn View from Madres

Canigou in featureless blue dominates a sea of morning mist. Perched on a granite peak the artist sees into rocky abyss, mountain lake and rolling green hills. The rays of morning in white traverse the scene.

Moonrise at Perpignan

The top quarter is sky -- green gray cloud and moon over black sea. Descending red perpendicular rays from the moon on extreme right bleed into barren rock and coiling mists. The palette is restrained but rather than subdued it is stong on contrast. The forms are gigantic -- skyscape, seascape, landscape -- even moonscape. Our eyes descend from the moon through bars of mountain cloud and rock to red, blue, green and yellow interlacing thorn.
