"Juliet of the Spirits" is a scene inspired by the tragic end of Romeo and Juliet, when the young woman discovers the lifeless body of her lover after waking up from the state of lethargy in which she was after swallowing herself a filter that simulated death... To translate this passage from Shakespeare's play, a pose borrowed from the Pietà of the Renaissance served as a model, Juliet's love also being pure and virginal. This painting mixes photography, digital composition and acrylic painting and is a unique piece. The surface of the canvas is covered with numerous transparent and shiny glazes that give a lot of depth to the whole. It is also enamelled with relief squares that catch the light depending on where you look at the work. The latter is framed in 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...
