PANORAMIQUE


MIXED TECHNIQUE EAST:
I use several materials, which I include around a personal photography.

First of all on a support such as it is, I come to oppose two complementary colors
in flat tint to it.
I stick then one or more photography, it is this test or
this series which will determine the composition.
I go more or less in the continuity of the photography; but before
all it is it which is used to me as discussion thread to organize space.
I work primarily acrylic painting, the fatty pastel and all materiels.
Other matters like the Japanese pearls or the African fabrics come to
reinforce surface; in order to give to the composition a certain prospect.

I like to mix the matters between it, to compose space, to redefine the image.
To give to the photographic direction another dimension.

PHOTOGRAPHY LIKE PRINCIPAL ELEMENT OF THE COMPOSITIONS:
IT ACTS LIKE THE VITAL NERVE, AROUND THE SUBJECT OF THE COLOURED EXPRESSIONS.
PHOTOGRAPHY BECOMES TEXTURE, "THE FABRIC".
TO BRING THROUGH THE MATTER, THE GLANCE OF THE OTHER;
THE GLANCE COMPARED TO THE DRAWING. THE FEELING OF THE SPECTATOR HIS GLANCE,
UNTIL HAVING FUN TO MISLEAD ITS.
