PAUL ELLIOTT THULEAU

 

 

Paul Elliott Thuleau is a landscape painter. he paints the sea, tropical light and mostly facades of creole houses. But, in fact, Thuleau does not just paint the appearance of creole houses.

Through theese facades , he translates the mysterious presence dissimulated behind the recess of a window or a half-open door. these open houses exhale a subtle perfume which reminds me of a passage from Joseph conrad:

" A light breeze passing through the ever-open windows imbued the room with the sweetness of the air, the languor of the soil and the bewitching breath of the waters of the Orient".

An excerpt from Lord Jim.as a matter of fact, Thuleau looks a bit like him. He has his silhouette and depth.
