Opening in the presence of the artist on May 19, 2022.
This personal exhibition is a new challenge for me, I want to affirm my evolution and my maturity by presenting my new works by myself during this exhibition, I want to differentiate my work on poster and my work on canvas presented in the gallery.
For a long time, all I knew was to be consistent. I understood my limits. But something has changed during this year 2022. I have been forced to question my "constancy" as well as my perception of the world in which I live and the place I wish to have in it. This exhibition is thus a small window open on some of the feelings that I endured, and finally conquered during this period.
Recycling reduces the need to extract, refine and process raw materials. Instead, the materials used are transformed into new products, which avoids exploiting the natural resources of the planet. As an artist, many of my ideas are on paper, and it's devastating to see that paper production is literally killing our planet through deforestation. As a model, I pay a lot of attention to fashion posters displayed in Paris.
I saw how every night beautiful posters are immediately thrown away to be replaced by new ones again and again. A friend of mine then brought me a large poster from the street, which gave me the idea to experiment with color on paper to see how it transfers, which then turned into my whole first piece. I continued to paint on posters, which was not only fun, but also great from an ecological point of view.
