The COSMOS II series addresses the issue of the conquest of space. The works are combinations of images of various origins: NASA images reworked with paint to form landscapes in which characters from 18th and 19th century painting are portrayed. The characters are placed in an anachronistic manner and evoke the gap between this ultra-technology and our daily life, or they embody in a caricatural way the human madness driven by the need for domination and conquest or the dreams of speculation in front of the immensity of the resources of the universe. The aesthetic references to ancient painting suggest that the romantic vision of a benevolent and energy-consuming space adventure is now a thing of the past, at a time when ecological and energy concerns are our present and our future. This work dramatizes this discrepancy. A farmer peacefully mows his field without paying attention to the gigantic threatening mass (rocket). Digital collage : photography and paintings. Fine Art printing : pigment inks on 100% cotton paper, mounted under a passe partout and white wooden frame (other on request). Framed size 42,4 x 52,4 cm (image 30 x 35,8 cm) Printed by the artist. Photographic source: NASA Character: after Winslow Homer (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.
