This large female nude is both very simple to compose and complex to read. The model's attitude is a rather classical pose where the two hands join in front of the sex to hide it, in a gesture of modesty that is a kind of self-censorship. But beyond the gesture itself which hides, there is the big red graffiti which completely covers all the erotic parts of this naked woman: the breasts, the navel and the hands which hide the sex disappear behind the red lines, as if a mad corrector had decided to censor the daring passages of a work, making it partly illegible, invisible. It is this form of censorship by graffiti that is to be understood in the title "Censored". This painting is a unique piece made in mixed technique on canvas combining photography, digital composition and acrylic painting (multiple transparent glazes that give a lacquered effect and squares in relief). The work is framed in black wood (total dimensions: approx. 110 x 100 cm).

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...
