This work consists of three paintings on Forex (1 cm thick), 198 cm high and 122 cm wide, designed to be juxtaposed with two 2 cm intervals between the paintings to form a wall-sized triptych.
"The works presented here are situated at the meeting point of photography, painting (including the drawing stage) and computer graphics. Starting from studio or outdoor shots, my work consists in bringing together these objective images with the subjective feeling of painting, my first profession.
This approach has led me to digitally model my way of drawing and painting. It is now possible for me to display on screen the premonitory images of multitudes of works made "in my own way", perceptible in their slightest details even before their material realization.
This realization is carried out on the basis of a single print, on Arches paper if the calculation of the image was stopped at the stage of the drawing, on panel or on canvas if it is a question of creating a painting in the full sense of the term. In this case the printing gives rise to a manual pursuit, over-tracking with acrylic medium bringing to the work thus finalized the "touch" of a real painting. " Hervé Bailly-Basin.
