Everything started with the following observation:

On seeing a coloured shape, the eye simultaneously produces and projects images, values, and hues, of a reverse nature.
This 'reciprocal image' has the consistency of a cloud of luminescent vapour.
It cannot be mistaken for the pigment’s tangible and palpable matter.
It appears suddenly or gradually, disappears, then re-appears, floating and drifting without one being able to stop it.
Unstable, moving, whimsical and uncertain, fleeting or persistent, it duplicates the sight of lightning flashes and dark veils like a hallucination.
Ihrough its influence, colours light up or shut down.
The 'reciprocal image' cannot be studied outside of the light and shade pairing, nor without observing the relations of colours between them, nor even without questioning the individual’s relation to the world, over and above meanings and codes.

The landscape, saturated with water, air and light, encourages the perception of colours in all their fullness.
