Utopia, black ink drawing on wood (plywood), mixed techniques, 2015-2020 (69 x 43 cm, thickness 2 cm, black painted rods forming a frame-contour). This work, like Mirabile Herbarium, Plumis Vegetabilis and Murum Vegetabilis, is one of my first graphic compositions integrating colour. Reflections of the beginnings of my Specimen collection which integrates the concept of survival and symbiosis processes. Utopia is made of a multitude of lines and dots, it uses forms inspired by art nouveau like many of my Specimens as well as the work "Algae Flores" (a drawing on wood with lighter lines and more minimalist graphic details).

Recently taken up again, in 2020, I wanted to bring depth and colour nuances in pastel shades (pink, purple, orange). White enhances the black ink, the graphic elements. These retouches allow the work to be viewed from afar while keeping the graphic details (points, lines and curves). It is a new dimension that I wished to bring to older works. The background was first painted and the drawing came later to proliferate on the surface of the board (between 2015 and 2016). So I decided in a last time to bring the graphic elements towards the pictorial and a colored atmosphere, working simultaneously the background to obtain a harmony.

A balance. Utopia embodies a world where Man is absent, where nature takes back its rights. It is an imaginary nature, poetic, prolific, in movement. A living nature. If references and inspirations are undeniable (notably fauna and flora, art nouveau and decorative art, Hayao Miyazaki's animated films, botanical and anatomical plates) my drawings are always the fruit of my imagination. They are also the result of an artistic approach, even a protocol, which frees me from the sketch, the pencil, a composition thought out beforehand and the model. The point or the line are the beginning of a creation without design.
