I can’t wholeheartedly subscribe to the thought, attributed to F. Nietzsche, that “in order to understand the painting, one must probe the depths of the artist.” It seems to me perfectly legitimate to appreciate a work of art while knowing nothing of its maker; and yet, I’ve spent many still and silent moments watching Mireille Camus work on her canvasses, before asking her about the way she works as an artist. I’ve tried to understand the sources of her capacity for creation, and the gestures which derive from it. These enquiries are the principal reason that I was willing to present, today, her work.
