Excerpt from the still
life series "Meat is the common zone of man and beast, their zone of indistinguishability, it is this "fact", this very state where the painter identifies with the objects of his horror or compassion" - Gilles Deleuze Francis Bacon, Logique de la sensation.
For this series, my graphic work, almost topographical, gives up close an abstract, gestural and nervous interlacing, like graphic capillarities, landscapes... From a distance, the drawing is hyperrealist, the digital "juice" unifying the whole. The nerve of this work would be the opposition between a "beautiful" way and a filthy subject. With this opposition, I try to touch the sublime: what is beautiful and scary at the same time. There is, as a filigree, a great respect for the beast, perhaps an attempt to give it back its sacredness, to pay attention to it, a childlike fascination for its "animation" (animal in Greek, it is what is animated, what has a soul).
