Quotes from Michel Maly about Venice:

“The noise of the ‘vaporettos’ and the songs of the ‘gondoliers’ make the silence of Venice heavy and thick and even muggier”

“Venice is a mixture of scenery sublime and meringue”

“I am painting because I love people”

“The drawing is for me the food of the canvas which will give the canvas a truth. That is why, while I am painting in nature, I don’t only look at it, but I also breath it and listen to it, in order to become totally impregnated with it”.

 

Michel Maly by Costa Gavras

Nature, towns and objects all merge into a conflict with light - which will dominate? Daly life or reverie? Reality or that which is desired? In each case both contradictions prevail, so that everything is new and fresh in Maly’s world. Looming ghosts, faint poetry and fearful murmurs emerge from our deepest childhood memories, when the entire world was full of joy and mystery.

The light in Maly’s paintings isn’t strictly ruled by man or means. The light frees itself. It surrounds an obstacle and the obstacle disappears. It surrounds an object and that object comes to life. It is both shadow and light at the same time. Maly, instead of trying to dominate or enclose the light, lets it meander in the most visible places, conveying melancholy, helplessness, hope; reminiscent of messages that hint at an intangible vaguely defined pleasure. I know few painters who have dared use light so sensitively and passionately as Maly has; both are bound together, without constraint.

It’s an inevitable bond of love.
