A variation of three large ocean waves of the tsunami type (but not a triptych), 2019. The silkscreened plates on the back, balance in an illusionist manner on columns ready to collapse.

Wave 1: 180 x 177 cm / wave 2: 160 x 148.5 cm / wave 3: 162 x 177 cm (helicopter shots in the middle of the stormy Atlantic) / acrylic glass in 0.8mm / 19th century stair rails/

A variation of three large ocean waves of the tsunami type (but not a triptych), 2019. The silkscreened plates on the back, balance in an illusionist manner on columns ready to collapse.

Wave 1: 180 x 177 cm / wave 2: 160 x 148.5 cm / wave 3: 162 x 177 cm (helicopter shots in the middle of the stormy Atlantic) / acrylic glass in 0.8mm / 19th century stair rails/.

Landscape painting always had the function of showing the state of things. How one has positioned oneself in front of progress and development in every epoch of history. William Turner is a good example in the representation of the transition state…

1. The waves. In collaboration with two photographers from Brittany, Mathieu Rivrin and Jean Guichard. Helicopter shots above the Atlantic, in Finistère (FR. 29) at the height of Nividic lighthouse (Ouessant). A wave casting during two different storms, tempête Fionn in 2018 and tempête Ruzica in 2016.

2. The three stair railings : end of the 19th century, origin Berlin, Wilhelminian style (Gründerzeit), provenance “Mietkaserne”. Patina, color, texture, scratches are intentionally left in their original condition. Time and Reality or the different materials and their historical eloquence are used as artistic vocabulary.

Modern materials, Plexiglas and industrial screen-printing contrast with ancient wood objects. Used or forgotten objects are reinserted into a new circle of meaning (injury therapy : Joseph Beuys).

(This period Gründerzeit, is described as the economic boom marks in the concept of industrial development and mass production in all areas. The beginning of economic liberalism and speculation, or the beginning of the modern world as we know it. After the views of scientists, the visible climate changes exactly at that moment).

top Partial Memories 1 (le grand dehors),

The great outside, a singing stone.

When one move closer to the stone, an old Latin song is played from within, as if a choir sings in the stone. The song is activated by the presence detector. A song coming from the depths of a stone…. a memory of Man in the great all… Who is containing who ?

Wenn die Realität über unsere Fiktionen hinausgeht. Über die Liquidität von Fiktion und Realität in der heutigen Zeit.'
