"The grid for 'The Supernovas - 005' is more ornate than the previous ones. The whole seems to levitate, an impression of gushing comes out of the creation. The explosion of colour is concentrated, central, condensed. 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 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 carefully remove the wax from the paper. Each removal is a real discovery for me. Creation balances itself and then takes on its full meaning through a dialogue established between logic and letting go."
