"The ektachrome is cut up, cut up, Derac adds fragments of coloured gelatins and adhesives to it, which give the image the appearance of a stained glass window. Contaminations play on oppositions between coloured polygons, a little like in Serge Poliakoff's paintings - because the contamination of which we are partly talking is of course that of photography through painting." Richard Leydier Photography after ektachrome, gelatins, adhesives and dust

Erick Derac is a painter - photographer - designer - colorist - cartographer. "Erick Derac breaks the conventions of the photographic medium by intervening directly on the ektachrome (silver positive film) before it is even used for the print. To intervene, that is to say, to damage, dirty, scratch, cover with paints, coloured films, scraps of tape, hair, dust, this famous dust that Duchamp had already elevated to the rank of a work of art. 
[...] It is a parallel world that slips between the eye and the image, a conglomerate of materials and particles as unique as it can be familiar. A world that shifts the boundaries of reality, transforms the known into an orphan continent (series Dérives), into an unpublished topography (series Sources and Tu n'es poussières), into impetuous and offbeat abstraction (series Leurre and Partage d'espaces).

 With his reworked photographs, Erick Derac builds a strange alchemy, both seductive and monstrous. "Liv Taylor for PARIS-ART.com
