LIGNE DE PARTAGE DU CIEL (Dividing Line of the Sky)


We consider these paintings as works of language.

We had in mind La ligne de partage des eaux (The Dividing Line of the Water), a sign we saw in France on a Burgundy freeway, indicating the junction of two canals, one linked to the Atlantic ocean and the other to the Mediterranean Sea.

In these paintings we used two slightly different kind of blue (cyan and ultramarine with a lot of matte medium), separated by a fuzzy unpainted line close to the center of the iconic field.
