"Les supernovas-001" is the beginning for me of a work around the blur and the dynamic contribution of luminosity in a busy and dense environment. I chose to mix cold and warm shades to accentuate the idea of radiance. For this series, I have access to my research on luminosity and work around the diagonal. 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 that you do not wish to colour.
It's a delicate job, which is done under pressure: every grid of my work is drawn in this way. 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."
