Street organ!

Does this taste like “la madeleine” of Proust? The aesthetic of the perforated paper is an invitation I could not resist. After having used LP’s and etched CD’s in my printmaking process, I directly connected with the languages of the fragile red paper that is introduced in the popular barrel organ.
Like a hidden message, my compositions try to reveal the rhythm of the perforations. Each small dot is not randomly punched, it is aligned or shifted to participate to the whole opera. The bright Carmin color of the paper encourages me to narrow the spectrum of the many colors I like, and use the fundamental print making language of black ink on white paper.
Cutting, folding, layering, printing, gluing,..., all those processes participate to the dense, dramatic and minimalist prints of this series.
For the installation in the WWA gallery, the prints are carefully hung on the wall as to continue the creative work of the French composer. Each piece suddenly participates to the melody of the tragic opera “Mireille” written by Gounod in 1864.

This installation has been partially on view at the Houston Fine Art Fair, September 19-22
