"In "Les Soleils - 003" I wanted to express a tension between two blocks, similar and yet distinct, absolutely similar but separated forever. I insisted on the diffusion of the "opera rose", which extends on both sides of the two blocks, creating a warm envelope, keeping the two sets in suspension without ever making them meet. For the series of suns, I tried to make intense flashes and vibrations cohabit. To do this, I chose to multiply the boxes filled with wax, so as to have flashes of white present everywhere in the creation.
I worked keeping in mind the idea of a radiant and warming block. For the development of my collection, I chose to work with a textile technique applied to paper, batik. Warm wax is applied to the places you don't want to colour. It is a delicate work, which is done under pressure: each grid of my work is thus traced. I had to tame a hot material; I had to learn to work fast. I chose a paper usually used in engraving, a thick Japanese paper, which absorbs water like a sponge, which completely takes care of the paint.
I apply six successive layers of watercolour, which I choose to wet more or less, in order to use the transparency properties of the material over a wide range. This allows me to obtain complex and charged colours, really vibrant and full of reflections. When my paint is dry, I have to delicately remove the wax from the paper. Each removal is a real discovery for me. The creation is balanced and then takes on its full meaning through a dialogue established between logic and letting go."
