Collioure exposé en large à Londres, une oeuvre de Andreas Rüthi

Collioure exhibited broadly in London. A work by Andreas Rüthi printed in gigantic format (6m x 4m) illuminates one of the walls of the Kingsgate workshops in London until February 26, 2023. It is a sunset over Collioure in a thousand colors.

Sunset Collioure


The original painting is of a smaller format: 42 x 30 cm.

Collioure Sunset plays with spatial and temporal simultaneity, where dawn and dusk light coexist, and yellow mimosa, white almond, lemon and orange trees are in permanent bloom. Rather than reconstructing the experience from a unified perspective, the work is a collage of fragments exploring new possibilities in the tradition of landscape painting.
