At the beginning, for "Les Soleils - 004" I wanted to draw a full cube and I had started my preparatory drawing in this sense. Then, while drawing my final grid, it was when I arrived at the meeting point at the top that I realized that the balance was there, and that I didn't need more elements. 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. Hot 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 takes care of all 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 gently 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."
