Ludus – “THE ISLAND OF ANOTHER”

” The Island of Another “, oil on canvas, 100 x 140 cm, available for sale, 2009

The word island from the title represents the island of a novel written by a French writer, on which the Internet does not provide much information, besides the fact that he is still alive and that his work can easily fit into four suitcases. It’s about “The Island of Another”, of the unmistakable Jacques Perry.

There is neither time nor place for a summary of the book, but I advise you to put your hands on this stunning novel, a true masterpiece of loneliness!

The painting “The Island of Another” illustrates one of the novel’s themes: the double duplication.

A storm forced the hero of Jacques Perry to dock in the evening on an island. He finds shelter between the walls of a house whose owner is away, and while exploring so deeply the existence of the owner, without realizing it, he duplicates into the life of the other .

In other words, the characters in the painting “The Island of Another” experiment what G. Bachelard called the dual status of duplication.
