Noir d’ivoire et blanc de titane – Tableaux grand format
Acrylic paint and gesso on acrylic panel
Galerie des Étables, Bordeaux, France, from December 11, 2014 to January 24, 2015
Choosing to paint exclusively in black and white represented a devious challenge: borrow a constraint from optical painters I admire while using opposite pictorial processes. Therefore, instead of deliberately painting colour patterns, I allowed matter itself to (de)form them. In my most recent project, I used thin flexible plexiglass panels. With my assistant’s help, I covered these supports with fresh paint and manipulated them in order to induce a displacement of liquid paint. The pattern of dots and trails that is generated by this process traces contradictory movements within the painting.
