Notebooks from Saint Paul

Home / Notebooks from Saint Paul

These notebooks are a major means of expression and the very essence of Tobiasse’s work. They are a concentrate of creative intimacy in the form of writings, drawings and sentences, emerged from night dreams or daydreaming between the years 1993 and 2001. Illuminated moments made of silence and solitude, they emerged at unexpected moments, in loose form, like waves. Real diaries of a creation that was pure and free, they filled up over nights and days, without any concern for the time or the hour.

 These notebooks were written, drawn, sketched, painted in Saint-Paul de Vence, New York, Venice and Jerusalem, the places of predilection of mad love and magical inspiration. Time would put itself aside and emotions transformed themselves into dreams, matters of exultation, creative fantasies. These notebooks are displayed in a case of 5 books printed with facsimile of the originals, edited by Biro éditeur and SMCI. They cost 280 € and are available on demand.
