"Les Nébuleuses - 006" is a unique work from my collection "Ode to Jakarta", which consists of watercolours, developed from the textile technique of batik. I chose to make a translation and to apply this technique to paper. The wax is flowing, unctuous, it seems made to draw curves.

That's why I chose to work with angles and straight lines in grid variations, because it's graphically the opposite of what the tool wants to do. By using this principle, I tried to insert blur, accident in my work always calculated. The hot material of the wax was difficult to tame. Its impact on the paper differs according to the heat and my speed.

That's what allows me to insert surprise: where the wax clings, its white and legible imprint will remain in the paper, while if it is deposited in a rather detached way, the watercolour will diffuse underneath and take its place. Once my six layers of paint have been applied, each removal of wax is a real discovery. The creation is balanced and takes on its full meaning for me through a dialogue established between logic and letting go."

A textile designer by trade, Camille Tardif has recently embarked on a multidisciplinary creative approach, the very essence of which is to bring together techniques that are refractory to one another in order to create something new. Taking things in the wrong direction is an essential value of her work.

With seven years of graduate studies in design, the artist quickly felt trapped by having learned too much. Inevitably, she repeats what she has been taught. The whole point of her approach today is to succeed in bringing her technique and her instinct into dialogue, to find a balance between logic and letting go.

Repetition is an obsessive principle for Camille Tardif, as much for the principle as for its aesthetic character: it is therefore natural that she finds herself present in her work. It is in the detail and in the repetition of the infinitely small that she offers creations to be apprehended from afar.
