"Here is a work that has matured over a long period of time... 10 years! The photographic shots that were used to make it date from 2008, a first version was made in 2009... that I destroyed at the beginning of 2019 because it no longer satisfied me. So I started all over again and the result is this construction very atypical compared to my usual style, since the mineral that characterizes my work has disappeared in favour of a treatment of the body in the style of tribal painting and tattooing, like a second skin. For the rest, on the other hand, we are in my usual work which mixes photography, digital art and acrylic painting, with the presence of my square-signatures which scatter the body of the model in a logic of dynamic non-alignment." - Georges DUMAS

This painting is a unique piece, made with a dozen layers of acrylic glaze and reliefs on the squares for a result with a shiny appearance as shown in photos 2, 3 and 4. The work is signed on the back and framed by an American slush fund.

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...
