Painting “AFTERNOON- Reflection Berlin ”
Nr. 2/4 of the serie “Reflection Panoramic”, bridges & 4 seasons – acrylic painting on canvas (35 x 70 cm), Laetitia Hildebrand, 06.2021
AFTERNOON: Now the sun is in the west in the sky, it’s the afternoon. The green trees and the the intensity of the sun, suggests the beginning of the summertime.
REFLECTION / REFLEXION : The Spree remains calm. It’s the pandemic (Covid 19 & Omicron). In the the beginning of the pandemic, we were facing a challenge: isolation and we think a lot. Communication was limited. Places were emptied of their inhabitants and landscapes remain motionless, as if dreamlike. Our reflections, our thoughts become almost realities. So in my series “Bridge / Reflection”, I invite you to discover the thoughts of the city, through the reflection in the water of the Spree. A meditative journey in Berlin where time stops. A bridge between two worlds. REALITY or DREAM? Surrealism.
