Imagine the Past

The representations in Clarys’ watercolours shape our image of the past, from the Palaeolithic to the Modern Age, and of the societies that preceded us. The roles between men and women, family models, mobility and exchange. Relevant questions about our contemporary society are also posed to those of earlier times. The past, which is actually inaccessible today, blossoms again in the eyes of the public through the artist’s imagination and drawing talent.
