Grass Carpet by Gaelle Villedary

How do we value great artists? does it move you? This is a moving installation work from Artist Gaelle Villedary.

Tapis Rouge

Jaujac is a small community in southern France. Gaelle has created ‘Tapis Rouge’ in celebration of the towns arts and nature trails programme. The artist wanted to connect the center of the town to the vast and rich natural surroundings.

What a fantastic achievement!

The grass carpet is a subtle and gentle red arrow pointing us in the right direction, isn’t that what art should do? It is gentle, touching and individually appealing. Looking at David Monjou images I fancy living in Jaujac and following the grass carpet out to touch nature every day.
