'Les arrêts de la vie' Solo Exhibition at the French Cultural Center Boston, presents a series of oil and acrylic paintings celebrating Arthur Rimbaud’s prose poem "Départ" from Illuminations, his collection of poems published in 1886. The venerability of this modern poem lends to our departure with the stations of life in search of new noise and passion. As an artist, I have been empowered and encouraged by Rimbaud’s intense and dreamlike words, and "Je est un Autre," another poem of the same poet, continues to shape my appreciation for French culture.
