It is the sight that thinks and feels - Karel Teige
My work is a conversation with images. He questions their mystery. The method consists in comparing a heterogeneous corpus of images from the most common printed media (magazines, postcards, vernacular and illustrated photographs, etc.). To work to disrupt their internal coherence, to focus on a texture, to be convinced by a printing screen. Operate by semantic shift and visual discontinuity, create a critical tension between the immediacy of the form and its polysemic richness.
The weaving of these gaps forms the structure of the staging of a visual proposition whose lines of force, the arrangement of forms and the arrangement of signs organize integrity. At the end of the creative process is a device that would like to stimulate the gaze before flattering the eye, and whose use would be an exchange of thoughts and sensations.
Instead of the notion of collage, I prefer the notion of assembly. It better describes my way of working and my objectives summarized by this word from V. Amiel: "It is the very value of images that is modified by their proximity" (Aesthetics of the montage). In addition, the assembly concept suggests a distance from the collage such as that between photography and painting. That is why my gesture will have a greater affinity with Hannah Höch, Max Bucaille or Toshiko Okanoue than with the collages of Picasso, Matisse or Schwitters.
Vincent Motron has been a regular visitor to the images for a long time. In addition to taking some art lessons, he studied art history and the science of librarians and archivists. He has also been an iconographer and graphic designer.
Currently, he lives on the French west coast a few miles from the ocean.
