"I go quite regularly to Nantes in the north of France to see my son. The city has an incredible architectural diversity, where the new and the old are side by side. Often, the views that interest me are the ones I come across by chance. This particular scene is seen from the window of my room in one of the oldest hotels in the city. The modern flat-roofed apartment and its unlikely palm tree shone in the late afternoon sun of September, as if they had come from space on the only available site among the older buildings. The clear blue sky added to the "Californian" ambience and this juxtaposition with the surrounding architecture begged me to paint it."

This work was done using several coloured glazes to produce a richness of nuance and light. It is painted on a linen canvas on a stretcher and the sides are bordered with a black linen ribbon.

It is ready to hang without the need for a frame unless you wish to do so.

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.
