Marc Ohana : The boats’ immersed art in painting

The boats’ immersed art in painting
Pictures of the underwater hulls, their submerged part only visible when dragged to land to repair the bumps and wounds that occur in the struggle of men with the sea, through which a contemporary evolution of art in painting can be traced from distant origins.
Bumps, splintering, delamination, embedment, parasites, scratching, capping, friction, spilling, stains, distortion, lines…
The transformation of shapes anticipates the forms of change and the stages completed in the history of the metamorphoses of perception towards painting and drawing.
Unexpected stains derived from designs inspired by the living underneath or below, towards the protective drawings representing the hopes and fears of the fishermen who set off across the ocean.
And which are between brackets, gathered in this space of reparation and preparation, at the edge of time and of the sea, on the refit dock of the port of Mogador-Essaouira.
And in meta-pelagic art, this contemporary and humble art, originating from the marine environment at all levels with objects tampered with by the sea and mankind.
Fortunes of the sea… Another perspective on the things at the bottom.
