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 drawn sheet of paper, with a superimposed papercut.

The abstract background is a disordered mix of colours inspired by the sparkling light on seaside water. The cutting out of long rectangles draws this pattern adding a movement that could symbolise the movement of the waves. Oil pastel and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

Freehand lines and shapes are hidden by a mazy cut-out : hieroglyphs and a mysterious path are a double secret code that is hard to decipher. Oil pastel and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

The drawing layout shows collections of little coloured lines suggesting squares clearly represented by the cut out plane, but a little bit displaced : a new pattern is created, a new genetic combination. Oil pastel and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

A collection of colours create a circular and a little bit psychedelic shape that the regular triangles cut-out completes by giving it a moving wheel movement. The compositon has an esoteric side. Oil pastel and papercut ; 40*50 cm.

Here again we can see the pattern of the video game Tetris that inspired a canvas to me a few months ago. The same shape pattern is used for the drawing and the cut-out, but the superimposition is a little bit displaced which totally changes the rules of the game. Oil pastel and papercut ; 40*50 cm.
