#EZE Through the metaphors it deals with and the forms it takes, the garden naturally participates in artistic creation. Classic or baroque, he is in charge of the representations that at a certain moment man gives himself an ideal space. It is this domesticated, humanized nature that responds to the anguish of chaos The exotic garden of Eze by its tormented relief, its vertiginous views of the Mediterranean and the splendour of its vegetation, incites us to this elevation towards a sky that draws us in and inspires us

She also needed the sculptor’s large female statues Jean-Philippe Richard to infuse it with this extra soul when they bend or spread like vegetable fibers in the lightness of the air that permeates the garden. There is this poetry of meditative looks that these women of delicately patinated white earth let float on the distance in a trail of luminous mist. Each sculpture interprets a dialogue or solitude but each time nature seems to react to its presence as if a mysterious wave crossed this invisible distance between the lush vegetation and this hardened earth embodied in a woman’s body

Here we claim the right to beauty, we abandon ourselves to dreams, we believe in the mirage of happiness. The goddesses contemplate the Mediterranean and contemplate us with benevolence. We are happy

They have come out of the earth, clothed in a simple soft bark; they whisper silence in a clear air. Time has no control over them or us. Art is this story of eternity.
