Tariffe Raslain’s recent works focus on colours in movement or the reflection that generates multiple spaces, on this theme he makes a short film entitled "Reflets" production CANAL+ and then "histoire d’une image" directed by the CNAP and a report broadcast on France 3. Some of his paintings are part of the national collection of the CNAP and the city of Paris, he has exhibited his work many times in France and abroad. "His double training completed until the end of the courses, in art history and at the School of Fine Arts, indicates the sharpness of the aesthetic reflection in which Tariffe Raslain has inscribed, reconciling thought and drive in a demanding dialectic. The first paintings, allegorical of modern sensibility, images of confinement in transparency - the urban or social glass cage - are of technical perfection, of "cold expressionism", and their nocturnal luminosity already suggests the importance of light, the light of painting, which will free the computer experience. As soon as he can in the 80s, Raslain adds the techniques of the image, and especially of the virtual color. The infinite possibilities of "magic slate" allow him to exercise without reservation a gestural style whose mastery becomes the structuring principle of his abstract compositions. The computer becomes the equivalent of the sketchbook of the painters of the old method, while keeping in mind the possible parade on screen of "luminous paintings", electronic drifts of abstract cinema". Raslain can print proofs like so many original prints, but they are also valid for preparatory studies for the canvases he makes with acrylic, which are for this painter concerned to reinvent painting in the cybernetic era, the axis and meaning of his ambitious approach."
