Claude Lévêque


"The signs of the days, shifts and zigzags of the soul. Scissors and clouds, scissors and white mists. On the throat, rust and coal. Swans gliding with the current reflected endlessly on folding mirrors, signs of the days lengthening, late June. The powdery smell of fireworks combines fantasy and nonchalance over the water. » Claude Lévêque
