From series to series, Erick Derac's work combines the luminous imprint of real space and the mechanisms of thought.

In "Dissolutions", the descriptive aspect of photography is broken by the blurred focus and by the abstract forms, resulting from mental projections, which agglomerate there. Nothing is done here on software: it is a question of comparing the precision of the chemical memory of the emulsion - the result of a physico-mechanical recording - and the photographer's own memory - a human function that alters, confuses, mixes, deforms -.

No desire to document, archive or attest to what is happening. But rather the desire to record and inscribe in the body of the ektachrome (the photographic film) the trace of the artist's presence in the world, marked by the experience of landscape.

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A world that shifts the boundaries of reality, transforms the known into an orphan continent (series Dérives), into an unpublished topography (series Sources and Tu n'es poussières), into impetuous and offbeat abstraction (series Leurre and Partage d'espaces).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
