This work is part of a series of 12 pieces entitled "The Queen" and devoted to the different facets of power. Here, through this queen with her arms dangling and her head bent forward, it is the overwhelming burden of the one who holds power that is represented, overwhelmed by the burden of office, by the weight of responsibility. A crown heavy to wear, a cross to wear. This painting is made in a mixed technique on canvas and combines photography, digital art and acrylic painting. The squares are taken up in transparent relief on the surface of the canvas, which catches the light and gives dynamism according to the position of the spectator: the painting, by its black background, its neutral grey hues and its reliefs, never has the same aspect according to the light and the place from where one looks at it. It is a unique piece, it is framed in a black American box (see pictures 2 and 3)

For about ten years now, I have been creating paintographies. As its name suggests, a paintography is a mixture of painting and photography.

From photography, I keep the initial shot, an essential and unavoidable basis for the work to come. I also retain, despite all the successive manipulations carried out afterwards on the computer, the precision, finesse and plastic quality that certainly distinguish it from painting other than hyper-realistic. However, a paintography is not a photograph, it is a plastic construction that raises doubts in the eyes, that raises the question of the nature of the image that is offered to the eyes of the spectators. What part of the work was captured by the objective, what part recreated by the software work, what part brought by the acrylic glazes?

Layers, layers, stacks: despite its extreme readability, a paintography is a complex construction, based on a succession of screens. The fabric or skin never appears naked, they are always covered by a material that is as much a screen as it is a body with them. This matter is itself obscured by squares that seem either to detach from it or to deepen within it; by evoking the pixels at the base of any digital image, these squares remind us that this matter is a decoy, that it is virtual. And yet, in the works in mixed technique, it is precisely these squares that appear in relief on the surface of the canvas, in a strange transparent materiality...
