Original print, linocut on imitation japanese paper NL 48 x 64 cm ivory white, 130gr/m², typographic ink in oil. Limited numbered edition, about 8 to 10 copies, depending on the composition, "Waves and breakers" series started in 2008. The artist's work focuses on a recurring theme: that of the expression of the dynamics of natural flows, turbulence, metastable states (between chaos and equilibrium) and refers to a poetic approach to Nature close to the philosophy of Japanese art. For him, it is a question of expressing the movement, power and expanding force of Nature, and of graphically translating this fundamental vitality, this "Great All" dear to Victor Hugo, taking into account the question of the limits of the framework of representation. The regular practice of live drawing feeds, in a continuous way, in parallel the creation in engraving. The shadow of the Breton painter and engraver Henri Rivière, a lover of Japanese prints, is never far away.

Since 1990, Éric Durant has regularly participated in national and international trade shows dedicated to engraving. Member of the engravers’ association "Engraver Maintenant". Engraving, now, for this artist is: Drawing by digging its furrow, testing the resistance of the material, generating a matrix, inking, unwinding, printing. Reveal an image... Keep a memory, honour the margins, celebrate slowness, do everything backwards, be there.


About linocut:
Over the years, linocut has established itself in its artistic activity as a privileged means of expression. It is a relief engraving technique (saving size) similar to wood engraving. Surfaces dug with a gouge will not be printed. The matrix is made of linoleum. It is a humble, artisanal practice that offers a slow ritual, with long drying times, where surprise and the unexpected, by decision, intuition or chance can occur, and reproduce, at different stages of creation. The power of colour, specific to oil-based typographic ink, the effects of textures due to printing conditions or the nature of the substrate, are combined with the possibilities of matrix permutations. The simplicity and modesty of the technique, which creative work can make people forget, continue to seduce him and feed his creation.
