Lives and works in Orléans - teaches drawing and painting - My "seen from the sky" canvases are made from photographs taken from observation satellites or web-cams. I have always had a particular interest in geography, maps and atlases. It is therefore very naturally that I collect these images on the web, where they develop and abound in billions. They are used to sketch the structure of my paintings and to give them an overall tone. Then my work consists in freely interpreting these photographs, digesting their coldness and inhumanity and highlighting their evidences and paradoxes. Through the thickness of the paint and the play of colour, I attribute to them a materiality that they do not possess. I also like to play with their scale, which allows me to use small and large formats, to confront empty and full, and to advance on the nebulous border; figuration/abstraction. As a general rule, my choice is between cities or the traces of our human civilization. But I do not select at random; the image chosen must have a graphic interest and must be linked in some way to a personal emotion originating from a text, film, music, memory, "geographical sensation" or geopolitical context. Painting is an archaic way of prolonging the life of a digital "modern" image, super-accelerated, in perpetual motion. It slows it down, mounds it down, embeds it, and in the end, brings it back to silence and immobility. Painting is part of humanity.
