This work belongs to a series of 12 pieces entitled "The Queen" and is dedicated to the different facets of power. The title is inspired by a song by the post-punk band Wire and explains the Queen's pose: by keeping several crowns of different shapes and sizes on her back, she reserves the right to change her style of government according to events and circumstances. Authoritarian power, conciliatory power, vertical, horizontal? "I seem to have so many choices open to me"...

This painting is done in mixed media on canvas and combines photography, digital art and acrylic painting. The squares are taken up in golden relief on the surface of the canvas, which catches the light and gives dynamism according to the position of the spectator. The photos were taken in the studio. This is a unique piece, it is framed in black.

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...
