Interpretation of the work by the artist:

The painter Géraldine wanted to paint a portrait of a naughty-looking woman with a fabric cap in relief. She enjoys working with cardboard and fabric. She loves the repetitive patterns of certain fabrics which leads to a certain contemplation. She decides to experiment with gluing fabric on cardboard (yellow fabric) and directly on canvas (blue fabrics). The artist even attempted to paint with oil paint on fabric. Successful experience!  A painting for the experimental artist. 

Géraldine also wanted to continue this game of patterns in painting: polka dots, lines intertwined with baobabs, her "signature" tree.  The patterns cause a nice mess and give vitality and movement to the painting The title of the princess with the pea imposes itself. Each pattern can be interpreted as a colored mattress or duvet.

It's up to you to find where the pea is!

A painting, a poem   


" The Princess and the Pea"


Everything turns and turns

Everything is movement

magic all the time

twirling, twirling

another world

in multiple colors

An upside down planet

Lines, patterns intersect

Comfort and discomfort mix

In a confusing setting,

melted into me.

A me, suspended, in parentheses


Let's stay the course

The direction to take

Let's believe in the future
