This work poetically illustrates the gap between this hyper-technology resulting from the conquest of space and us, in our simple everyday life. The staged character does not seem to care or even be interested in the take-off of the rocket taking place in the background. She goes peacefully about her occupation in an interior that seems devastated, abandoned, but which she has apparently reinvested and occupied. This work, like the whole COSMOS II series, raises the question of our relationship to technology, ecology and the idea of conquest. Digital collage: photography and paintings. Fine Art printing: pigment inks on Canson Baryta Prestige 340g paper, mounted under passe partout and oak frame (other on request). Framed dimensions 52 x 42 cm (image 39 x 26.4 cm) Print made by the artist Photographic source: NASA Character: after Charles Frederic Ulrich (Philadelphia Museum of Art - Public Domain)

The relationship with nature has been at the heart of Sébastien Grenier’s artistic work for more than fifteen years. His research leads him to apprehend the raw nature as a form of incarnate truth, plural, a set of forces. Experiencing the landscape, the elements that make it up, is preponderant and is part of an initiatory journey. All of his work is characterized by a certain attraction for origins, the primitive, but also reflects the impermanence of things, their constant mutations, the mysterious organization of chaos. The absence of human presence, familiar objects or architectural elements, the loss of reference points of scale, perspective or temporality lead to a total immersion and a direct reconnection, free from the prism of culture, to matter and living things. In this way, it testifies to a desire to restore nature to our sight, our memory, this intimate and collective memory, which underpins and connects us. Using painting, photography, mixed techniques, digital experiments, collages, Sébastien Grenier has developed a unique writing style. His work is also divided between immersion in the heart of nature and fitness in the workshop or darkroom. After more than forty years spent in the major cities of Paris, Nantes and Bordeaux, he opened his studio in 2013 in the small village of St Antonin Noble Val in the heart of the Aveyron gorges.
