"Virtual Reality" offers several readings. One is the painting itself: it is an artificial composition, a virtual reality in the full sense of the word, since the model we see on the canvas, covered with graffiti on a damaged material, seems plausible (this is the photographic aspect) while being a pure invention (it does not exist). Another reading holds for the character: with her eyes blindfolded by what looks like virtual reality glasses, this woman no longer sees the reality that surrounds her, she is in her own world, a purely mental universe. The mask over her eyes hides her and at the same time plunges her into a parallel, virtual existence. Our future? This painting is a unique piece made in mixed technique on canvas and combines photography, digital composition and acrylic painting (many layers of transparent glaze and square in relief). The painting is framed in black wood (total dimensions: approx. 66 x 46 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...
