Five colors are distributed across thousands of strands of thin Christmas balls in the installation.
Standing as vivid colorful visual treat over the grand pergola of the Hotel-de-ville, Le Havre, France; the art installation derives from the impressionist movement. Claude Cormier discusses here his ideas that lead to the creation.
The installation creates a panorama of colors over the grand pergola.
"The impressionist eye is here articulated in a basic palette of five colours distributed across thousands of strands of thin Christmas balls. Mimicking the opportunistic wisteria and its voracious pursuit of light, these strands shall invade the bare patches of the grand pergola at Le Havre's Hotel-de-ville. These swarms of pink, purple, green, blue, and off-white will blur with the existing flourish of climbing leaves, creating a vivid impression, alive and artificial, animated by the canvas of deep blue and chasing clouds that is Le Havre's maritime sky."
