About this piece:
Man is filled with clouds that know him from childhood. Jean Orizet While watching clouds that were passing over the port of Genoa (Italy) I was inspired to create this artist’s book. In the midst of thoughts about nature’s forces and movements, tragic events in my life led me to take stock of my existence. The movement of the clouds creates an unpredictable and mysterious energy that colors our thoughts. In this atmospheric energy I found the strength to contemplate my past and imagine my future. I even glanced at my horoscope to counter nostalgia, sadness and anxiety about my destiny. These coded messages, sometimes prophetic, often funny, became my travel companions. As clouds and astrological predictions came and went, I found a new equilibrium that enabled me to envision my new life.
