I had the pleasure of meeting Sabine Arminjon in Paris last September. We had an enjoyable time together. Sabine is a very special artist. I love her work and talent. Her work reminds me somewhat of Jean Cocteau. Her paintings and drawings often include poetic writing. The colours that she uses makes me think of another time period in France. One of my favorite films is by Jean Cocteau called La Belle et la Bete/Beauty and the Beast. I have always been fascinated by the themes of duality. I like the way Cocteau explores the ideas of duality through the actor Jean Marais. This film and Cocteau´s life was interconnected in some ways as it is with most artists. Jean Marais plays both the beast and the handsome prince in the film. The duality is captured through Jean Marais´characters. The duality continues throughout the film with the sensations of light/darkness and beauty/beast along with love/lost and love/hate. I am also fascinated by how we view people who we love and then when the love sours, the image that you have of the person radically changes and you see that person in a completely light/darkness. This photo of Sabine was taken at the Centre Georges Pompidou. This photo carries on with the exploration of duality that I previously had been doing with the Bohemian Nude series. This photo is not a part of that series. I feel that I have gone much deeper into these sensations through this photo and I am quite pleased with it. A very special photo of a very special person.
