“CAPTURED BY THE BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY”
~Les Bohèmes de Paris~
(acrylic on canvas/140x100/2011)

“Is this the real life…or, is this just fantasy..?
Caught in a landslide; no escape from reality.
Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see”….

Paris 1962
The year, that Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev first danced together in a Royal Ballet performance of Giselle in London, Beatles drummer Pete Best was fired and replaced by Ringo Starr, the 34th Academy Awards ceremony was held; West Side Story won Best Picture, France and Tunesia re-established diplomatic relations, Marlyn Monroe died of an overdosis…and, French Actress Marie Trintignant, was born….

I was a young artist at the time; a stubborn idealist, filled with rebellious fire & passion; to change the world and to kick against the shallow & insensitive taboos in the World. Money was a subject of non-interest to me; as often, those who had money, often abused the word Peace & Charity for their own benefit and ego...and, often did not have the Intellect or Depth, to see further then their wealth and their status of Fortuna; some called me Revolutionair…and others, would call me Elitair...

Men would find me intriguing and “different”; however, as was mentioned, I was stubborn and in search for Unique Love, which felt as warm & loving as the selfmade flamboyant colourful coat that I was wearing; made of little pieces of material, with each piece, representing a precious memory from my childhood.
Due to my unusual flamboyant coat, women often saw me as a threath…except for those, who had integrity and stood grounded in life and who realized that “happiness & beauty” is within…and not, in the trademark of just a coat.

“My pockets are empty....but, my heart is filled with Passion & with Wealth”
Wilde On a semi sunny day in June, I was strolling sûr Le Pont Mirabeau and, while I was eating ma petite baguette from the local boulangerie à Sentier, and dreamingly gazing across la Seine….all of a sudden, my eyes spotted a stranger’s warm gaze down below, staring at me intensively; a mysterious man, wearing a Mask of Magnificense & Splendour; set with uncountable Rubies and Diamonds, which sparkled in the joyful streams of the Sun. The man held up a bottle of Don Perignon Champagne and waved at me to come and join him for a glass, down below Le Pont Mirabeau... “Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine Et nos amours, Faut-il qu'il m'en souvienne, La joie venait toujours après la peine”... We talked and talked, drank Champagne and smoked our Cuban Cigars…and, were dancing the Tango on the crying tunes of some kind of Argentine Rhapsody, played by a lonely violist from a little boat sûr la Seine. And before we realized, the Sun switched places with the Moon...and, the mysterious Veil of the Night embraced us… It felt like I knew him longer then one life and I know, that he felt the same… That night, I told him my life story by showing him my coat, made of all precious memories; something, I had never told anyone before in my life….the man felt as warm as my bright coloured coat.. Although, the Mask of Splendour was still covering half his face, it did not take long; I could see right through it, like it was made of transparent and exquisite Lace, to suit the beauty of his warm & sensitive Bohemian Soul... I loved him then....and, I love him now.. In the darkness of that Parisian night, he promised me “the Moon and the Stars” off the Parisian Sky…and I know, he would….if ónly, he could… But, it were not the Rubies and the Diamonds on his Mask, that caught my heart; I was captured by what was underneath....his smile, and the vibrant warm colours of his Soul, which would blend so well with the colours of my Soul...and, make an ultimate colourful & passionate composition for “The Bohemian Rhapsody"...

“My Life of Extremes; I paint the lives of “Clochards & Royalty”…
~Amy Polling
Artiste/Peintre

Born in San Francisco, California, out of a Dutch traditional artistic family, Amy Polling has also French blood running through her veins! She lived in various countries in the world and considers herself as an “European citizen with an American Topping”.
She gets her inspiration from her own life experiences and through her early travels around the world, where she came in contact with people from all sorts of backgrounds & cultures; the Bedouin, Clochards & Royality..
Amy feels especially drawn to people with a tremendous Passion for Life and who possess a charismatic enlightenment; “the Bohemian” and “the Elite”, such as, Musicians, Dancers, Pierrot’s...people, who have experienced “Life” from all corners and yet kept “grounded” with their “being” and who still dare to dream.
In her paintings there is a strong influence of her theatrical background:
a sense of Drama, Poetry and Music. She paints Masculine with Passion, and Feminine with Sensuality, Serenity and Mystique..

After her 5 year’s studies at the Royal Art Academy in The Hague, The Netherlands, Amy “eloped” to Paris to start a career as a Fashion Designer for “Promostyl International” and “Sonia Rykiel”. Also, she has worked as a Theatrical Costume Designer in major Musical and Opera Productions for a number of years. Her creative abilities in Theatre always took her to many different countries. Although, Amy has been painting all her life, it is since 2006, that she followed her heart and changed a successful career, for the career of a Professional Fine Artist; with an unique and recognizable style and oeuvre.

"I believe that Art can put down many borders & bridges, and reach beyond horizons; bring all cultures back together in Peace & Harmony...and, reach out to the hearts of all people"..

*Amy has exhibited in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Monaco, Dubai and the US. Also she has joined & exhibited on international private events.
