"A visit to the Museum of Modern Art in Paris allowed me to immerse myself in the world of automatism as described by Delaunay, Leger and their comrades. The brightly coloured fervour and complex gestures of the paintings are further exaggerated by the serenity of the room in which they hang.

The light streams in through huge bay windows and beckons us out of the bright interiors of the wings of the gallery as if it were going up on a stage where the paintings are the divas. The room is almost empty. It's lunchtime; the best time to visit, to immerse oneself in the world of the creators. In this painting, I wanted to represent the vastness of the space, the calm and tranquility, but above all the incredible light and reflections that the architecture allows.

The pictorial agitation of the central work is reflected on the natural stone floor, seemingly plunging into an endless pool to finally find some peace. This canvas is made with diluted oil paint, spread in many layers, creating a depth and richness of colour. I let the paint take its course, letting the depth work its magic. Light is my greatest inspiration and the play between "natural and artificial" juxtaposed is of constant interest.

I then like to observe the interaction of the visitors and the reaction to the environment in which they find themselves. The same goes for the objects arranged in a space and the place they play inside, by the spectators and myself the artist".

A moment never lasts, it's there, you just have to take it. Hold it, let it go. To engrave, behind our eyes, to burn, in our souls. To hold, for a moment. And then forget it. One moment. Here, here, here, here. And he goes away again. This is the fundamental conceptualization expressed in Amanda Rackowe's work.

His exploration of the transitory exchange of human existence at specific moments brings us into an atmosphere of semi-surrealism, where his images evolve between figuration and abstraction. This atmosphere, sometimes sketchy, reflects her preoccupations with the fragility of the moment and space, and their transient intertwining. Unconscious intersections of lives and memories exist in scenes where the viewer is present but rarely involved.

This torpid and involuntary invasion, although a physical attack, is fragmented. There is no insight, no new revelation about the ego or the inner consciousness of either. Working in several layers of paint, using washes and glazes, the artist builds a richness and depth of colour.

Spontaneous marks and paint flows, deliberately encouraged, bring her work to life, echoing the determined and random possibilities of life's (un)exhaustible journey. An underlying primary red, a nod to the warm core of the earth, dominates her palette. His choice of colours shifts from blues, turquoise and crimson to deep ochres and yellows.

Although her love of colour is obvious, her fascination with light is also evident in all her work. In front of his work, one is called upon to examine and question the seemingly banal experiences of life. Amanda Rackowe lives and works mainly in the Dordogne in southwest France, sharing her time with her beloved Ile d'Oléron on the Atlantic coast. Her work is regularly exhibited throughout France and is widely collected in Europe, the United States and Australia.
