I hear that "smoking kills"... This is what this work, "Pleasure", seems to show, where we see a particularly damaged woman's bust surmounted by a skull that gives the impression of looking at the spectator, while a cigarette continues to smoke between her fingers....

But is that the only interpretation that can be given to this painting, I let the visitor decide. This work is realized in a mixed technique on canvas and combines photography, digital art and acrylic painting.

The surface of the canvas is entirely covered with transparent glazes (a dozen layers) and enhanced by square reliefs, which can be guessed on photo 4 with the light that hooks the upper edge of some of them. The painting is framed in a black American box, as shown in photos 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...
