"The Land of the Dreaming"

or "Le Pays du Rêve"

 
 
 
"...So now, with his latest work, he has moved into a totally new area of exploration. It is perhaps not instantly obvious just how to react to these monumental pieces. They maybe do not give of their secrets as readily as François's earlier work. These rigorously constructed images require of the viewer that they be prepared to immerse themselves in close study for their mystery and power to fully reveal itself. For it is the mystery of existence itself that they seek to express. That they so successfully do so is, in large part, due to the arrangement of the individual elements. They are constructed just so and thus it must be for there can be no other way. As François himself has said, he has woven a tapestry from details; a rich and beautiful tapestry where, as in life itself, the whole is considerably greater than the sum of the parts."
