This work belongs to the "Marks & Graffiti" series and uses the same material as "Pudeur" also on sale here.

The painting is covered with a dozen layers of glossy glaze and the squares that seem to be hollowed out are in fact in relief, according to an absurd trompe-l'oeil logic. This is a unique piece, framed in an American slush fund. The last picture shows me in front of the painting at the "ArtCité" 2019 exhibition in Fontenay-sou-Bois.

"It's a way of showing how my work is a subtle combination between the subject (his attitude, his poses) and the materials with which I petrify him (here, a very damaged subway station wall with a red mark intended as a marker for work in progress): when "Pudeur" evoked femininity in its most central aspect, "Target" shows a man on his knees who seems to be a target, perhaps about to be executed.

Like all my mixed media work, this painting is a combination of photography, digital art and acrylic work." - Georges Dumas

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...
