"I start with an everyday object and bring out an abstract and poetic image using a method I have been using and refining for years. My influence comes from the science and technique of macroscopic photography. As well as an influence from abstract painting. These photographs expose the infinite in a permanent tension between two extremes that usually escape our view, namely the microscopic and macroscopic worlds, the infinitely small and the infinitely large. Unpublished landscapes are created within the work from common subjects that have become unrecognizable. The work on the textures and on the light, which in turn imposes or evades, gives the work a pictorial character. It could be a revisiting of still life, transforming it into immortal nature, the choice of organic matter not being insignificant. Within this intraterrestrial world, at the eternally present moment of contemplation, the infinite is spread out, both of interpretations and of the image itself. The work is in perpetual saturation. It encompasses the world from its creation to its apogee, for it is to be contemplated as a macrocosm. Space-time is drifting towards abstraction. The gaze is plunged into the unfathomable abyss of life whose depths it does not touch. On the contrary, it is carried in an upward movement towards the vault of possibilities. We come out of the dictatorship of forms, which are triturated, cut out, superimposed,... to arrive at a new genesis, a Promethean attempt to offer in spectacle the secret of the gods of this terrestrial Olympus. The artist, the work as well as the spectator become co-creators of a new universe that abrogates exclusivities. Photographs highlight the fact that everything is correspondence, especially when you see the ends of our space-time prison merging together." - Night8Bird
