Poetic subjectivity of objective space

Exhibition Dates: August 12th –Octobre 12th, 2014
OPENING RECEPTION: Septembre 12th, 6:00 – 8:00pm –Artist in attendance

My research focuses on the ambiguity of the pictorial space in paintings. It is a research on the poetic and subjective properties of the matter, which increases the emotional impact and enters into dialogue with scientific objectivity. A study of the duality and ambiguity of plastic and scientific codes, and of the notion of space.

Juxtaposition and depth are two critical and founding features of my work. It speaks of different languages, a linking of form and formlessness. I appropriate codes that I collect and make them shine by contrast.

“Pictorial poetry is generated by the tension between the artistic and scientific references in the works. This duality causes an emotion that is subjective and specific to each viewer, which is the main motivation behind this exploration.”
