With the collection “Ombre et Lumière “(Shadow and Light) I worked by observing the evolution of our social relationships in today's world with the advent of new technologies. Actually, more the means of communication grow, less we really communicate. We don’t talk anymore; we chat online. We don’t cultivate our mind anymore; we connect online. We don’t confide anymore; we expose our life via social networks. Our style of communication is more direct, fast, without nuance.
The result is a historic social upheaval unprecedented, where we gradually lose our roots, our bearings, and our identity, in favor of a universal standardization.
I wanted to describe this visually and I found inspiration to express this reflection by creating paintings with graphics pure, dark and bright, smooth and rough, accented with bright colors, in opposition to the nuances of blacks that I apply in broad Impasto, and gives the impression that the painting evolves according to the light and the location of the Viewer.
