"Between 1991 and 1994 I must of went to Morocco, 7 or 8 times. I then went back in 1998. I first went when I used to work for Utmar Tours, and later with Accor. Morocco, is so beautiful, magical. It's as if the time stops. I drove a jeep across the country, from the North to the South, even in the desert, all the way to 40 km of the Algerian border. You have to understand that not too many women in Africa drove back then..." : Maryse Casol.

Painted by Maryse Casol in 2005, using Sennelier oil made in Paris, France at 3 Quai Voltaire facing the Louvre (painting of choice by the greatest artists since 1887, such as Degas, Cézanne and Picasso) , on a custom cotton canvas, mounted on a frame in linden wood made by Bambino Gianfrancesco, owner of Les Cadres et Moulures Majestic, one of the best Italian artisans in the world.

Graduate from the Istituto Tecnico Settore Tecnologico school in Campobasso, Mr. Bambino was also a Track and Field Champion in Europe in the 1960s before coming to Canada!

"Linden wood is the best and most solid, ordinary canvases are usually mounted on pine (lighter wood with knots, that deforms over time due to changing climatic conditions)" : Maryse Casol.

The Voyage

Mickaël Casol: Maman, comment as-tu eu l'inspiration pour peindre Jardin Secret?

"Au Maroc, les portes ovales sont partout, typiques de l'architecture locale. Tu marches dans la rue, il y a des portes fermées, mais quand tu y entres, tu découvres une vraie oasis, une cour intérieure magnifique, l'hospitalité incroyablement chaleureuse des Marocains. Même si les gens n'ont rien, ils vont trouver de quoi t'offrir à manger et à boire. Voilà les jardins secrets." : Maryse Casol.

Mickaël Casol: wow. Et quel chemin as-tu pris pour arriver au Maroc? Par Paris?

"À l'époque... il n'y avait pas de vol direct, donc c'était Montréal, New York, Casablanca. Tu sais Mickaël, je suis aussi comme un jardin secret, je n'aime pas trop parler de moi, je suis discrète..." : Maryse Casol. November 2018.

From the February 13-15, 2006, in the modern and dynamic environment of the HEC Montreal business school, Maryse Casol presented 4 paintings of her latest collection : Parfum Vénitien, Jardin Secret, Passion Immortelle and Instant de Méditation.
