Murum Vegetabilis, fine felt-tip drawing (black ink) on plywood, mixed techniques (inks, paint and white chalk), 2016-2020. This work, like Mirabile Herbarium, Plumis Vegetabilis and Utopia, is one of my first graphic compositions incorporating colour. Reflections of the beginnings of my Specimen collection which integrates the concept of survival and symbiosis processes.

Recently taken up again, in 2020, I wanted to contrast the graphic elements with white ink and pink shades. These retouches allow the work to be viewed from a distance while keeping the graphic details, the work of the support material and the erasure or attenuation of certain parts of the drawing by sanding. It is a vision, a new dimension that I wished to bring to older works. Murum Vegetabilis is a repetition of the same moving specimen, composed of dots and lines made with fine black felt. The background was initially made with coloured inks. The drawing with black ink and white chalk came later to proliferate on the surface of the board. I then worked on the material of the support by sanding its surface to obtain various shades and create a relative erasing of the drawing.

So I decided in a last time to bring light with white ink and to revive the pinkish hues of this work in order to bring this new dimension. The white ink comes to compose the moving specimens, as if swimming in a pinkish and textured water. The work of the material itself of the support brings a new glance on the latter. The fibres are visible, reminiscent of textiles, cloth, living things. This colourful work is inspired by art brut and botanical plates. Between fauna and flora (terrestrial and marine), Murum Vegetabilis embodies a world where Man is absent, where nature takes back its rights.
