At the beginning of Martin Jarrie was a landscape, that of the valley of the Sèvre in which flows this important tributary of the Loire, the Sèvre Nantaise. From the bottom of his parents' garden, he could see the Saint Martin farm, but he could also make out La Jarrie on the other bank, where he lived his first years. His attachment to this childhood land was so strong that Martin Jarrie chose the names of these places as his pseudonym.
"In my childhood home, there was my father's vegetable garden, with my mother's flower bed at the top of the enclosure, gathered around the well, and, under the nearby veranda, the succulents and other potted flowers, the objects of all her care."
It is while remembering this maternal garden that the desire to paint these portraits of flowers came to him.
See you on Wednesday, November 23rd from 6pm for the opening of "Flore". !
