Entitled Je me souviens (Remembrance)
, this 2019 oil on canvas abstract is by contemporary Mendocino/Bay Area artist, Gaétan Caron (b. 1964), co-founder of Lost Art Salon in San Francisco. Gaétan also lives and works in his off-the-grid home located in an heirloom orchard in the Mendocino hills of Northern California, a stone's throw from the wild California Coast. His work documents the textures, colors, forms, as well as monochromatic shadows and reflections found in the natural world through contemporary abstract, botanical, still life, landscape, seascape, and portrait Fine Art photography. French speaking native of Québec, Canada, Gaétan returns back East regularly and also to Europe, especially France, for art inspiration and creativity. His favorite tropical island is the Big Island in Hawaii where Gaétan likes to go once a year in the winter to get his fill of fire, air, water and earth energy he recognizes as particularly powerful for his art.
