With a Preface by Sarah Moon.
With Rain People, Ophélie Asch plays with our gaze and intertwines dreams and fantasy with the harsh reality of textures. She offers us an exalted, almost fantasy vision of our most ordinary daily lives, a memory at the surface of the water. Close to the worlds of painting and engraving, her images are both impossible to categorize and profoundly visionary.
To quote the words of Sarah Moon, 'Ophélie’s world doesn’t exist any more. Neither ground nor sky. A world of reflections and illusions, of mirages. Over time, the memory of a tree. Ophélie also remembers a man lost in the mist of a mirror. A delicateness, a quaking of the sky.'
