I came across information about artist, Louis Pons in the documentary “The Gleaners and I” by Agnès Varda.
Watch this video clip from the film where Varda interviews Pons to learn more.
The subtleties of Pons’ statements make a lot of sense to me, not in a way that I can put my finger on, but in a more indirect way. The way he finds beauty in the discarded is inspiring and the way he thinks of his work as paintings is charming.
I look at myself as being an artist in the tradition of Pons and artists that came before and after him.
