Shadows and more shadows turning into shapes.
White is light and black is the shadow, a shadow which becomes flesh and blood: why no red?
Emerging from the canvas, a human being is calling for life.
Emerging from a dream, we walk through an endless evolution.
Maybe we are not real, maybe the shadows are now conscious while looking at the spectators, the old visitors of the new museums.
Questions: where is the mirror border? What is the truth? What is more real?
Choose between the canvas and the History books; choose between philosopher’s mind or painter’s brush. Can you?
Ivan de Monbrison’s paintings are a world because an alive world is jumping out of its strict frame.
Are we the shadows?
Two reflecting worlds looking at each other.
