Bernard Alain ( Monaco)
Reminiscences / 2014 / oil on canvas / 200cm×150cm
Appreciation: Under the artist brush, the marks through life and the vestiges of past event are transformed into images. The painting, Reminiscences, by Monaco artist Bernard Alain depicts the experiences of artist’s life with surrealist approach, like what Spanish artist Dali did in his art piece, The Persistence of Memory. The clock indicates time passes, while the brushes, paints, palettes, drawing paper and letters capture the colorful memories of artist. They represent the joyful family life and yearn of dream, as well as the nostalgia and the regrets. Just like what artists said, the future has become the past.（Wang Yong）
