A nude was painted on the canvas. Then it was covered with white to disappear completely. Then an enigmatic Kanji suggests the existence of something to discover. The hidden nude symbolizes censorship, puritanism, hyorcrisy. It must be hidden from view but leaves a possibility of being discovered by the most informed. The nude will be invisible when the painting is hung on the wall. To see it, one must turn the painting over or put it in front of a light source.

Passionate about the Sumi-e technique, Péchane alias Philippe Imbert presents a gallery of black and white works fully representative of the Zen culture. Unknown in the West, this Japanese technique consists in painting a motif in a few lines to let the mind imagine the rest.

Between art and communication

Originally from Nevers, Péchane took a one-year refresher course to study art. Afterwards, he took the Beaux-Arts exam in Dijon, which he passed, before continuing his studies in communication.

Péchane graduated in audiovisual and graphic arts in 1996, but at the same time had to meet his military obligations that same year. "My idea was not to serve as an officer in the military but in the civilian sector, as a conscientious objector, for two years, then to leave for an advertising agency in Paris."

Back to the roots and unexpected discovery

For more than 20 years now, Péchane has been making films and photographs in a cultural and social place as a conscientious objector. But he has never forgotten painting, his first love.

In 2002, he stumbled upon a report about Japan and the ancestral technique of Sumi-e. That day, his life was turned upside down and he started to practice this Japanese technique dating from the 8th century. This technique consists in painting with Indian ink on paper. A beautiful tribute to the Zen culture.
