The artist infiltrates four times in nature. Nature flews through her veins
and settles under her skin. The colour on her skin is adjusted to the 4 season
we have in Belgium: winter, spring, summer, autumn.
The tint of blue that the sky has on that specific period of the year-circle, is condensed on the skin of the artist. Marie Julia Bollansee uses 4 blue pigments: kobalt in winter, ceruleum in spring, indigo in summer and ultramarine in autumn.
The Impressionists studied the same setting in different lights or different seasons. They looked at it with their eyes and painted it. Marie Julia Bollansee goes into nature, into the same small biotope several times of the year-circle. And she becomes nature for a while.
