Original artwork description:

636 - LANGOUSTE. The Solitude of the Animals in a Box is a series painted with acrylic colors and pastels on canvas. The pictorial language recalls the surrealist cartoon and pop style.

One day, looking at the drawing of the grazing cow on a can of tinned meat, I was surprised by the obvious thought that that box kept the remains of an animal, like a kind of small sarcophagus or a funeral urn.
And I thought that even those little spoils stolen from their world and life, locked up in the darkness of a jar, perhaps on a supermarket shelf, deserved to be celebrated with a little consideration and compassion.


These are small-format works, mounted in decorated vintage frames, in the style of certain collections of old family photos.
The frame is in gilded resin.

Materials used:

Canvas, acrylic paints, coloured pencils, coloured chalks
