Christophe Verot's artistic universe is part of the permanent search for a minimalist composition with clean lines that invites spirituality. At the crossroads of influences from the West and the East, chiaroscuro plays an essential role in highlighting the points of light in works.
In his still lifes, the very meditative meticulousness with which Christophe envelops everyday objects, by neutralizing the colors and the original materials, allows the gaze to focus on the colored element - fruit, leaf, flower - highlighted. in the composition, an element sublimated by a color, a unique color, of an intensity with hypnotic power.
The viewer's attention is then captivated by this semi-abstract atmosphere, in a fascination conducive to meditation. Sometimes it's food that gets thrown into the light. Food at once material, spiritual and cultural, it symbolizes what nourishes life and creation in a world of impermanence and emptiness.
In this play of contrasts, shadow and light, straight and curved line, concrete and abstract, monochrome seems to abolish the space-time references that are familiar to us: we are sailing in a world where Christophe Verot's art is at the same time photography, painting and sculpture, giving free rein to the imagination of visitors overwhelmed by what his work emits above all: Peace and serenity.
