Mediterranean Hinterland- Recent works by Thomas Verny

From May, 24 to July, 18 2015


Creating an ensemble dedicated to the different aspects of the Mediterranean landscape has been the object of my research these last few years. It is a kind of a painted diary, incorporating views taken on the spot, form every hour and every season.
