"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."

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.
