Gauguin Painting Two Women of Tahiti
Figurative Oil painting on canvas
162 x 130 cm - 2015
In 1891, Gauguin went to Tahiti. He wanted to "live there in ecstasy, calm and art". The artist Amaury Dubois, inspired by the elegant and decorative lines of the painting Parau Api, created a painting that uses the synthetic lines, simplified forms, powerful graphics and vivid tones of the work. The curves cutting into the surface emphasize the languid attitude of the women sitting on the beach. The lines and the liveliness of the colors, closer to Matisse, remind us that life is here, joyful with the music of the sea and the instruments that will soon make the women dance.
The foliage curls up and embellishes the hair of the two seated women who are talking and confiding in each other. One is wearing a flowered sarong and the other a blue and yellow striped sarong that contrasts with the waves that the artist Amaury Dubois has created and that surround her. Nature is exuberant, protective and enveloping. The two apples of Gauguin, on the front of the painting, have become bracelets, jewels that nature brings as a gift? But they move... too.
This painting on canvas by the artist inspired by Gauguin's painting, takes us far away on a journey, both physical and mental. Tahiti, the Pacific and its beaches, where calm and relaxation make us forget the daily stress. Moreover by the spirit the journey continues through the bright colors, in a contemporary and colorful painting where the most banal object acquires a surreal dimension ... "This is not an apple" ...
