I worked on a series entitled "Paname". An exploration of the urban jungle. It is from a black and white silver photo in the Olympiades district in the 13th arrondissement of Paris that I built this image. Transforming black and white into color is one of the steps in my work. The "petite ceinture" is a railway line that used to encircle Paris.

Today, the different sections have been left to abandon. The vegetation is happy to take back its rights. Pieces of paper are torn and used during the printing process. Like collages, I return to the already existing image. Single prints of each silk-screen print pull the image towards illusion. The image is torn apart to let us into the photographic scene.

Printed in silkscreen - 14 ink passages. Edition of 4 copies on Munken Pure paper, 100% cotton, 250g/m².

Born in Paris in 1973. His discovery of the artistic world was made in 2008. A training as an art framer allows him to work on artworks and this is how he discovers photography, then very quickly screen printing. In 2014, he was accepted into the collective screen printing workshop of the Cité internationale des arts de Paris, which allowed him to develop his technique, build his projects and meet the international art scene with the residents of the cité des arts. Eric Mercier also works with children and teenagers in art schools and high schools, introducing them to the technique of screen printing. It is from silver photographs, between the subtle play of screens, lines and flat colors, the transparency of inks that he succeeds in interweaving photography and screen printing. The colors must result from a process of research and harmony. He makes sure that there is no break, no raw separation to create a graphic complexity. "I like to provoke chance, whether it is constructed or deconstructed in the course of printing by accident or by intention, resulting from the emotions projected. One of the goals of his work is that the image he creates calls forth another in the imagination of the viewer.
