Overlays

Inspired by trendy double exposition in photography, I too wanted to work on different layers, and play with contrasts or suggest sensations. Each one of the following artworks includes a painted sheet of paper, with a superimposed papercut.

The principle of this artwork is simple: a coloured grid overlapped by a papercut grid, but with a shift from the first one. A voluntary shift which could upset some people with a weird sensation that the papers are not put together well, but I am myself satisfied. The "politically incorrect" effect reminds us that art creation obeys no rules. Acrylic and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

The same process of triangle and square patterns is used on the two layers, but as the shapes are randomly put, the overlay creates contrasts and new shapes for an interesting and strangely retro result. Acrylic and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

The same symmetrical and geometrical pattern is used on the two layers, but the overlap is a little bit moved in order to create a third pattern, new shapes, and to suggest a notion of movement. Acrylic and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

Geometrical shapes repeated in lines on a shaded blue background evoke the Native American decorative arts and culture. Acrylic and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

I thought that optical art could particularly well lend itself to the different layer process of my art. We can then recognize here one of my favourite patterns taken from this art movement and Vasarely's artworks. The visual effect is guaranteed! Acrylic and papercut ; 40*50 cm.
