400 ans du marché des Lices

A l’occasion des 400 ans du célèbre marché des Lices de Rennes, et à l’invitation de Destination Rennes, nous sommes invités avec BIMS à créer une œuvre sur une palissade de chantier. Pour la composition, j’ai souhaité m’inspirer des mobiliers et de l’architecture qui fait toute la singularité de ce haut lieu de la gastronomie locale. Une peinture semi abstraite évoquant aussi certains produits du marché.
