natures mortes | 2011-15

A feeling of fascination emerges from the tangle of works of art and road networks, transcribed from photographs of Roissy, Tokyo or Kyoto and memories of readings by Emile Verhaeren. The infrastructural works are found unearthed or laid bare as so many vestiges of the civilization of the queen automobile and of a massive urbanization, devouring nature and landscapes. They compose an aesthetic universe, whose graphic play on the lines or on the curves and the replica of the embossing, reveal the poetic power. The almost surgical look on them and the addition of blue in the blacks intensify the feeling of their presence.
