Three cultural institutions of the city of Aix-en-Provence (Musée Granet, Musée du Pavillon de Vendôme and Cité du Livre) have joined together this summer to exhibit different facets of my work over the past 25 years, in addition to more recent creations after a two-year project focused on Mount Sainte Victoire.

Musée Granet will present my first retrospective in France, from the early formative training received in China up through recent forays into plein air painting.

Also a first, the exhibition at the Musée du Pavillon de Vendôme will cover my painting techniques and methods, including a collection of brushes and the nomadic studio used in the Cézanne backcountry project, as well as selected gouaches and drawings made atop Mount Sainte Victoire.

The Cité du Livre, Galerie Zola, will be showing from 21 June-14 September Sound Traces, an immersive video installation drawing from my residency at the Festival d’Art Lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence in 2017.

Trois institutions culturelles de la ville d’Aix-en-Provence (musée Granet, musée du Pavillon de Vendôme et Cité du Livre, galerie Zola) se sont réunies pour montrer durant tout l’été différentes aspects de mon travail de ces 25 dernières années, ainsi que mes toutes dernières créations, suite au travail réalisé autour de la montagne Sainte-Victoire depuis 2 ans.
