Secret of Eden. The Beaudier Painter. (Nov 2011). 130x195 cm.
The Garden of Eden or terrestrial paradise is in the first 3 chapters of the Genesis, the first place of residence of humanity. Adam and Eve make the original sin there and the men will be driven out. In Hebrew the word Eden means pleasure. The name Eden probably has a relationship with Edinn which is the Sumerian name of the plain of Babylon, it may be that the author of the Genesis had to remember the green landscapes of Mesopotamia. The Eden is mentioned in other books of the Old Testament like an extremely fertile place and the word continues to evoke an ideal environment. The play of the colors being rather complex we put the painting moving. One perceives well in the center in the foreground the tree carrying apple, behind him a couple making the original sin and with the recalling background a silhouette with yellow and green contours, either the benevolent creator for a Christian, or a very famous painter whose key also vibrating and was split for a lover of Art.
The point of view of the spectator, just like the prospect, are central.
The prospect is central all the perpendicular lines and the obliques convergent towards the center of the composition. The propagation of the various colors is also done on the basis of the center. The key vibrating, is split in multiple segments, the same line can contain several colors. It is tons them clear and the hot colors which dominate.
One immediately notices this large red range which of deploys to the bottom and the left. In top it is especially the blue which dominates and on the right the yellow and the green. This red, fruit of the original sin means pleasure and lust but also sexuality and vitality.
Behind the tree each one imagines the 2 bodies in full original sin. Even the apple is present. With the background the silhouette with the goatee is detached from a known artist.
The center where the exchange between the 2 characters takes place the apple seems tended by a hand and a red arm.
This zone of red color has two functions, by the form it symbolizes the coat or the cape which often Van Gogh carried, by the color it represents the blood of the original sin and the menstruation.
The hottest colors thus most luminous are projected forwards.
The character also looks at to him towards the line thus the future.
