This small painting entitled "Carapace" shows a woman curled up on herself, with a broad, round and powerful back on the outside, as if, by this armour of flesh, she was protecting her intimacy from external aggressions. It is therefore a nude that is both very soft and powerful, an intimate yet slightly demonstrative nude: a shell that impresses a little to protect a fragile treasure. Small particularity of this painting: it has only one square, at the bottom right of the canvas, inside which appears the monogram of signature. This painting is made in mixed technique on canvas. It combines photography, digital art and acrylic painting, with a dozen layers of glaze and raised squares that bring vibration to the surface of the canvas which is shiny. It is a unique piece, it comes with a certificate of authenticity. The painting is framed in an American black box (total dimensions: about 30 x 30 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...
