Territoires d’Infini (Infinite Territories) 146 x 121 cm
These Territoires d’Infini tell us of a distant land where nothing is known or recognisable. This territory is made up of a matter whose origin is to be found before life came into existence and which contains the potential of life itself. A primordial silt, a magma of particles of light… it is an ocean of intense activity.
Far, far from the world of shapes and appearances, I am striving to invent a raw material, essentially made up of light, where photons, atoms and molecules undertake permutations according to an infinite combinatory logic. This unstable matter, which is simply energy in action, is in perpetual transformation: movement, fluidity, plasticity… a never-ending renewal. No stable shape may reside there.
Fragments of infinity, these paintings have neither up nor down, neither left nor right… They can be hung from any side.
Above and beyond the teeming activity of the coloured motes of dust, there are spaces of silence where the body becomes ineffective and ill-adapted; only our soul can travel there and reach out to the limits of the universe.
