The title of this work can be explained by the attitude of the Vestal whose face is turned towards Heaven, towards (one) God, waiting for an oracle, a sign from above. With his hands behind his back, the figure also seems to be waiting a little passively, ready to accept the omen to which he exposes himself in his whole body. Finally, the title is a reference to the piece "Ich warte" by the experimental music group Einstuerzende Neubauten which begins with "Ich warte mit geschlossenenen Augen / I'm waiting with my eyes closed", which this work retranscribes in its own way, the white veil covering the eyes. This painting is a unique piece made in mixed technique on canvas. It combines digital art, photography and acrylic painting through the realization of numerous layers of glaze as well as relief squares tinted in blue. The work is framed in an American black box.

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...
