About the work

The work
The quiet and deep beauty of the " mental landscapes " of SAMA allows the spectator to travel in its own internal world. We are snatched by these paintings and feel the irresistible need to penetrate into them, to go to the borders of the horizon to become soaked with this serenity.

" Hands tell eyes the secrets of the spirit ", writes Germain Nouveau.

The artist, by intirable practising, masters the technique and opens himself to reach spiritual reality.

This communion sometimes shows itself under the shape of innocence, witness of a supreme spirituality. The experience of innocence and joy which make only one, is a shape of intuitive consciousness which frees art: the painter then reaches an artistic experience tinted with beauty, rightness and truth.
