Danse Avec Le Courant
mixed media on paper ( watercolor + acrylics) - 50X70cm - 2020
This Artwork is a digital painting adapted from the traditional painting "Portrait Without Makeup II". I designed it as part of the ecological campaign "Vote The Environment" to sensibilize and educate people on the preservation of wildlife and environment.
This painting is part of a group of Artworks I'm working on. The concept is an extension of the "Citizens Of The Jungle" project. I'm confronting the human body and its place alongside the richness and diversity of nature. See how we interact and are part of it and at the same time how we transform our world to fit to us.
I'm showing the ambivalence / ambiguity that lies in each human being, the 2 sides that are clashing and go in opposite directions within us:
- The constant need to control, adapt our environment to our own needs without thinking of the consequences of these modifications.
- In opposition to the need of peace and balance that we can find when connected with the natural environment. A kind of roots that we've rediscovered.
