beach disaster – 2021
Anne Papalia
problematic: coastline disappearing
description: This series of paintings at first glance represents seascapes under an idyllic sky. In truth they document an environmental disaster. They were painted ‘en plein-air’ on Corsica, near the artist's studio, who over the years has documented the erosion of the coast through the language of painting. “The coastline changes from year to year and the beach of my childhood disappeared under the attack of the waves”.
