Symétries (Symmetries) Formats variés
In reaction to a period spent studying the informal, I wanted to experiment with its opposite: the rigour of symmetry.
To preserve spontaneity and unpredictability, I put into place a method which guaranteed harmony, whilst simultaneously allowing many possible courses of action: I use pre-designed modules which make it easier to identify the different points. I place constellations of hundreds of points which are arranged symmetrically, then I look for the elliptical curves which will connect them together. In this way, numerous curves come into being, the more remarkable ones will determine master figures to guide my colour work. In this way, I obtain a dynamic complexity of lines and colours. Shapes appear, blossom and then fade away in a tangled web that implies more than it shows.
I associate this series with my work on internalisation obtained through meditation: its symmetrical structure, like a skeleton, facilitates relaxation and equilibrium and ensures a stable base which sets the spirit free, letting it travel through unusual and subtle regions. It is only natural therefore that a vertical image of a body often appears.
