"The Chenal d'Ors remains one of the most authentic places on the Ile d'Oleron. It is mainly dedicated to the preparation of oysters. As time goes by, these cabins are replaced by more modern and solid constructions. Luckily for my artistic eye, several old wooden cabins are still standing, but their walls, which at the time were painted in bright colours, are now beginning to tarnish. The wilderness, abandonment and unforgiving sea air are depicted in my own collection of "postcards" of this beautiful island on the Atlantic coast."

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.
