“This is not postcard Paris. It is about the secret world of the people who live there, depicting the coexistence of the real and the imagined . These paintings are like stills from a film or a paragraph from an unwritten novel , you are given the scene , the characters and the mood : the narrative is open. I have been visiting Paris for over 30 years, since I had my 1st Artist Studio Residency at the Cite International des Arts . I now live and work part of every year there, in Northern (non Touristy!) Montmartre.” – Wendy Sharpe 2019.
