"Artist offering happening and live painting services"
The "White collection" was born in 2012, from my admiration for the famous painters Pierre Soulage and Jakson Pollock. This series of paintings proposes a spotless and unsuspicious universe.
To support this impression, the aspect suggests the embossed Japanese paper; and the dripping effects are sculptured and carefully guided such as lace of paint.
The collection "Female Object" was designed in a context of revolt further to the various political events connected to terrorism issues. The position of women in the Society and the ability to express oneself freely really inspired me.
I chose to revisit the theme of the "obvious facts" approached by Magritte, by transposing the famous "This is not a pipe" in "This is not a doll".
It seemed obvious to me to depict a "puppet woman" suspended by almost breaking threads). These threads represent the feminine taboos: taboos the Society imposes to women and how men perceive women.
Alternately every painting brings a different eye on it: Sometimes it refers to male spectators and their desires, sometimes to women, being an "object" for men.
This collection is an open interrogation to the spectator who will formulate his own answer: does "female object" still exist nowadays?
