As the late summer rush hour draws to a close, the interconnectedness of the lives that cross the Pont d'Aquitaine is beginning to diminish. The sun is low and blinding, requiring intense concentration on the road ahead. The silhouettes inside the vehicles in front of us are experiences, memories and thoughts, all embodied in the dark forms. We cannot see them, we don't know them, but we instantly brush past them as the sun lowers its mask as if to prevent us from seeing more. And so we continue, each on our own, in our journey, in our existential bubble. The light of the sunset can often create an intense beauty close to monochrome colours. Here, lavender and golden yellow are perfect complements. The strong sunlight has erased one of the columns of the bridge, giving it a mysterious appearance. Large stab wounds and a "loose" brush amplify the blinding light effect.

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.
