Alexy Berthelot, I am self-taught artist, my workshop is situated in Geneva.
I present a series of works in oil, called " LEVITATION ".
As a starting point, the white sheet, and universal common object that contains all possible. I model with my hands abstract forms, often misty, sometimes compressed. The moment of a photograph, I capture and freeze the aesthetic, the movement of an ephemeral work.
I then use the oil painting, my favorite medium, inspired by the traditional painting and photorealism. Transparency, opacity, texture, are obtained by successive layers of glaze and by adding material.
I transcribe unique shapes on monochrome backgrounds.
The use of contrasts and composition reinforce the idea of feeling, of timeless and precious object. By lines and colors each work invites us on a personal imagination.
