Inspired by the poem "The Spring with Peach Blossoms" by Tao Yuaming (365-420), the father of landscape poems.

According to traditional Chinese beliefs, lives exist throughout the universe in different worlds and in different dimensions.

In this tale, the story of a man who discovers, by chance while fishing, a passage leading to a forgotten, utopian and happy country. The fisherman, despite the many markings left, never managed to return to the entrance of this secret world with the persistent scent of peach blossoms.

Metaphorically, the "Peach Blossom Spring" is a symbol of an unexpected place, a preserved world, an island of serenity isolated from the rest of the world or a retreat from the real world, usually a wilderness of great beauty, a utopia, a Shangri-la.

It is said that, in Taoist beliefs, the peach tree is the symbol of immortality.

Born in 1966, Dominique Meunier is an award-winning visual artist whose work is exhibited internationally. Dreamlike and fragile, his singular work is composed of paintings, drawings and writings. With a clear sense of nature, and self-taught in his style, his gesture reinterprets the landscape between dream and reality, drawing inspiration from all those places that pull the soul out of its lethargy.

His trajectory gives an essential place to gesture, intuition, chance and the unforeseen, deliberately letting the unexpected operate on the canvas. At the base of a meditative and poetic aesthetic turned towards the essential where it is question of renunciation, of spirituality, he arrived in his recent works at this point of stripping where he makes the simple deep by approaching the real direction of the things where the borders between the absence, the almost nothing, the invisible, and the presence of the totality of a saving nature that he has sanctuarized in its original beauty and that becomes a guide for contemplation, reverie, and opens the way to introspection. This beauty awakens in him feelings of absolute. It touches the divine.

As always with this artist, his approach has no reason to exist unless somewhere a thought is cultivated, a poetic is elaborated to recognize nature as the mirror of our souls as well as the timeless metaphor of the existence already carrying symbolic resonances which make perceptible the link between the real, the vital territory and the tenebrous space of the finitude. What is the real? Where does the flow of the life go?
