"To create is to give order to chaos in an excess of beauty to better reveal the truth of the world."
Engaged until 1987 in pure abstraction, Vincent Verdeguer's work was initially a plastic introspection of the canvas on the surface and in depth using multiple media - canvas, metal, wood, wax paper, oil, vinyl....
The exhibition at the Musée de Toulon in 1988: "le corps, la galère : noir et blanc et le photographique", became the real starting point for Vincent Verdeguer's plastic work.
He accumulates clichés during his stays and travels, creating a "reserve" of motifs, waiting to be assembled and resonated. The latter, he calls it "grafting", born from the encounter between mixed, triturated, disorganized materials that are diverted from their original nature and thus create a hybridization between photo and painting.
Photography is what the body is to the soul, a visible or invisible embalmer of creation. It is also a means of distancing, giving meaning, allowing the return to the subject, while energy, attacking the pictorial paste and reintroducing the lost matter of the photo.
Vincent Verdeguer is an alchemist. His work is alive, organic. The raw, archaic textured paper refers to the body, to the skin, to incarnation.
At the borders of the materials, he creates a space between reality and imagination, which he calls "l'Entre Monde" (Between Worlds), whose aura comes to challenge the viewer.
Trained at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts, atelier Mathey, he is an agrégé d'arts plastiques de l'Université Paris I Panthéon - Sorbonne.
