Philosophy

Maryse Casol - Ceci N'est Pas Un Arbre

Série de 13 œuvres picturales


"Ceci n’est pas un arbre, c’est un paysage intérieur"

Peindre, c’est exprimer l’intériorité de mon âme, ma passion sublime, le voile d’énergie subtile que je suis.

C’est aussi un acte primitif originel nécessaire à la survie de l’Être, trace de son passage dans ce monde, l’émanation d’une étincelle de son âme. L’œuvre picturale est une poésie lyrique et mystico-spirituelle.

"Ceci n’est pas un arbre" est l’expression de l’étincelle divine qui m’anime. L’Arbre séfirotique, Arbre de la vraie vie.

"L’Arbre séfirotique n’est rien d’autre que la forme cachée de la divinité." : Gershom Scholem – Les Thèmes de la mystique juive.



L’Arbre et sa symbolique

"Ceci n’est pas un arbre, c’est le Tout de l’Être"


L’arbre symbolise la liberté, les fleurs de la Terre, la vie, l’éloquence, la transcendance, l’élévation vers la Puissance Suprême, vers la Lumière.

Mon aspiration à la transcendance mystique s’exprime par la représentation de l’arbre et sa symbolique. L’arbre symbolise ma réalité ontologique. En le dématiéralisant, j’exprime ma recherche de transcendance ontologique pour m’approcher de la transcendance mystique.

La déconstruction de la matière au profit du spirituel nous permet d’évoluer vers la transcendance spirituelle par le biais de la connaissance, de la raison et de la réflexion.

L’entéléchie de l’épanouissement se manifeste alors à travers la lumière, la simplicité, la beauté, l’harmonie, la vertu, l’Amour, la joie, la connaissance, l’éloquence et la grandeur d’âme.

"L’Arbre symbolise toutes ces valeurs morales et métaphysiques qui édifient l’Être." : Maryse Casol



La Simplicité

La puissance expressive se crée par l’interaction des formes simples, des couleurs pures et des tracés d’où émane une puissance méditative suscitant émotion et plénitude. "Simplicité et Essentiel du geste sont une réalité primitive préhistorique. La vérité se manifeste par l’épuration de l’Espace et des Formes" : Sam Aberg.


L’Absolu

La beauté de l’âme dans son absolu ne peut que s’exprimer par des couleurs et des formes abstraites épurées. Des formes et des couleurs qui expriment le suprasensible, l’infini, la métaphysique, le sentiment moral, la paix méditative.

La simplicité est un achèvement, un accomplissement. C’est l’entéléchie de l’épanouissement de l’Être.


Le Sublime

"Ceci n’est pas un arbre, c’est l’expression du Sublime"


L’émanation d’une force mystique.

L’arbre reflète l’expression de l’Éloquence, de la Noblesse d’âme et de cœur, de l’étincelle divine.

La métaphysique du peintre est son exaltation.

Le Sublime se trouve dans sa vérité métaphysique. Sans mysticité ne peut jaillir d’impulsion créatrice vraie. Le mystère du Sublime insuffle la pureté, la simplicité, la vérité.

"Le Sublime vient du cœur, l’Esprit ne le trouve pas" : Honoré de Balzac.


Lumière et Musicalité poético-mystique

La peinture est l’expression d’un contenu mystico-spirituel et intellectuel.

La luminosité et le rayonnement émanant de l’œuvre picturale traduisent la vie intérieure du peintre, l’harmonie, la plénitude, la paix intérieure, source vitale de l’Être.

L’Art n’est pas seulement représentation, mais dévoilement, authenticité et puissance émotionnelle.

Peindre est une musicalité poético-mystique, symphonie de l’âme.


Conclusion

Sagesse et Lumière de la connaissance


Connaissance, Transcendance spirituelle, Simplicité, Humilité, Noblesse de cœur, Éloquence, Sagesse et Mysticité guident chacune de mes œuvres.

Des œuvres imprégnées d’une Lumière et d’une musicalité poético-mystique aux échos de Musique Céleste invitant à la méditation et à l’élévation transcendantale.

L’aurore spirituelle, comme des gouttelettes de rosée, inonde l’Être d’une douce Lumière aux reflets d’harmonie et de paix intérieure.

Philosophy - Ceci N’est Pas Un Arbre VIII

Trees are an integral part of the universe and of ourselves. They are for me a great source of inspiration and vitality. The tree symbolizes freedom, the flowers of the Earth, life, eloquence, transcendence, elevation up to the Light. My desire for spiritual and mystical transcendence is expressed by the representation of the tree and its symbolism. The tree symbolizes my ontological reality. By dematerializing its shapes (flat shapes) and using pure colors without shades, I express my quest of ontological elevation for an evolution to the mystical transcendence. The refinement of matter to the spiritual allows us to evolve towards spiritual transcendence through knowledge, reason and reflection. The entelechy of self-fulfillment then manifests itself through light, simplicity, beauty, harmony, virtue, love, joy, knowledge, eloquence and greatness of the soul.


"The Tree symbolizes all these moral and metaphysical values that edify the Being." : Maryse Casol.



Here, in Ceci n’est pas un arbre VIII, the trunk of trees is related to the meaning of the column which symbolizes the tree of life, the relationships between earth and sky, the material and the spiritual, the masculine and the feminine. The concept of verticality also applies to the spine, a symbol of assertiveness.

ו

In Hebrew, the letter "vav" represents everything that brings things together, binding and unifying, as light and air do. The "vav" symbolizes creation, union, fertility resulting in birth and life.


"This letter also symbolizes complete inner harmony, the result of transformation and perseverance." : Georges Lahy - The Hebrew Alphabet and its symbols


It expresses the passing of time, from the past to the present and the future.


ש

As for the letter "shin", it represents the root of the tree. It symbolizes the spirit and the energy in movement. Like the tree, it radiates through its branches and shows expansion. It is the symbol of emotion, the purpose of life, individuality and of the spirit, the root of existence.


Colours

Red is the colour of passion and the principle of life. Bright red is the image of ardour and beauty, while dark red represents the mystery of life. In Ceci n’est pas un arbre VIII, the vermilion red expresses my exaltation for life, love and the act of painting, while the dark red cadmium translates the mysterious beauty of woman and the life which she gives.

The blue symbolizes knowledge and dreams, and as a result, my passion for knowledge and escape through dreams. Blue is the most immaterial of colours. It is the way to the infinite where the real turns into the imaginary. According to Kandinsky, it attracts us to infinity and awakens in us the desire for purity and a thirst for the supernatural. We therefore understand its important metaphysical significance.

Green symbolizes the regeneration and awakening of life. It is the colour of hope, strength, longevity and immortality.

Grey is the symbol of mystery and elevation, but also the rebirth of an idea or an emotion. In the artwork, it energizes the colours to enrich them with their greatest intensity. Thanks to grey, the emotional power of the surrounding colours is intensified, magnifying the explosive beauty of emotions! Here in Ceci n'est pas un arbre VIII, grey represents the mystery of life, love and rebirth through the power of the feeling of love.


Theory

In classical-modern art, the artwork is subject to a composition-rhetoric. There are several forms of compositions, the main ones being 1) the horizontal, 2) the classic diagonal, 3) the frontal diagonal, 4) the pyramidal, 5) the vertical, 6) the narrative, 7) the horizontal narrative, 8) the narrative horizontal and 9) the frontal horizontal, each carrying a deep iconographic sense.

The composition of the artwork shown here, Ceci n’est pas un arbre VIII, is a frontal horizontal, made in post-Fauvism.

In a frontal horizontal composition, the protagonist element is placed at the edge of the composition, preceded by a minimal spatial entry. The elements are positioned vertically, but expand horizontally. When you want to express something of importance, you use the frontal horizontal. In this case, it's the symbol of the tree that is important : the freedom, knowledge and intellectual transcendence.

Fauvism is an art movement whose evolution spread out only from 1903 to 1910, but which is the substrate of modern art. The word "fauve" is used for the first time by the art critic Louis Vauxcelles, during the Salon d'Automne of 1905 at the Grand Palais in Paris, who exclaimed: "Donatello among the wild beasts!" (with reference to the 2 sculptures in marble by Albert Marquet in Renaissance style, standing among these Fauvist paintings), seeing the works of the painters, in pure and vivid colors on exhibition by Henri Matisse, André Derain, Albert Marquet, Maurice de Vlaminck, Kees Van Dongen, Charles Camoin and Jean Puy.

Fauvism expresses the sense of looking at oneself : ontos. (ref. definition of onto: Element, from the Greek ôn, ontos "being". Color translates into a search for oneself. It is ontocolorism.

Fauvism art deconstructs nature to mould it according to the individuality of the painter. It is symbolized and exalted by colors. The space is combined by the chromatic exaltation and the eradication of perspective.

The eradication of perspective by raising the horizon line in the work is a way of expressing the present time (presentism). The truncation of some elements is a very important parameter, allowing to express the kinetics-temporal (movement in time), and kinetics-light effects (movement of light which becomes the subject). Hence, in the Maryse Casol painting Ceci n’est pas un arbre VIII the combination of movement, time and light, is the principal subject of the work.

The expressive power is created by the purification of the flat shapes, the exuberance of color, and the simplicity of large deconstructed spaces.


"Art is transcended only in the synthesis of its simplicity" : Gustave Moreau.
