Experiments I did during the painting of my desktop board. It was unexpected and the configuracion I install for protect me from the heavy sun rays, allowed shoot few pictures of some thematics I was interrested in, since I was student at the Lycee des metiers d´Arts du Gue a Tresmes, in the “Peinture publicitaire” dept, contrast between: MATT-GLOSSY . LIGHTNESS-DARKNESS. REFLECTIVITY-NON REFLECTIVITY.
In this series the ephemere is making it all, this hi glossynes state of the matter surface, just have few minuts duration, so the only way to make a trace, it s photography it, each medium in his own especificity. It´s a kind of feedback loop process where, painting and photography, inner and outter field of view , light and shade, are in a perpetual runaway.
Second intent, with just oil painting. Well finally oil allow muddy mood for texture, but not allow so precise trace, cause it´s tooooooo long for dry, it wasn´t what i was expecting and lookin for.
furthermore I will blend the two type of paint (synthetic and oil) in two-phase 1.tracing light gray and black trace 2.gradient texturing of matter in muddy style with oil paint in semifluid consistency 3. background with oil paint in compact consistency apply with ruler pass…
Next will be the good one! Then I will begin the final series of twelve small and medium format, square and 1.6 proportion.
14-18 RH (Ressources Humaines – Human Ressources) PAINTING
Is a serie of painting I have iniciate in January, due to heavy charge of work at the univiversity teachning Clase and creating purpose for the APROCIENCIA project. I just made few trys and paint a small one.
The subject is about the memory of my grandfather. He was soldier during the WW1, engaged in the conflict from 1914 to 1918 with the French Colonial Corp (Tirailleur Senegalais) as simple troop soldier. Was injured two times, participate in major battlle, La Marne, Les Eparges, Verdun, Chemin des Dames, he mostly was affected between those two areas Argonne, Craonne. He managed to survive the hell of the trenchs and became alive. I never met her.
Jean Francois Marie Le Bihan, born in 1896, married in July of 1919. He died peacefully in his bed at his own farm Kerurgan, Malguenac, Morbihan, Brittany, France, the 3 mars of 1953, father of eleven childs. In loving memory.
I am painting with oil, inbetween mirror and glass sheet, from photographic pictures of the places he was. I plan to make twelve paintings (via crusis) regarding of chronologic and where he was affected along the conflict. Also an important dimension for me it s have to keepin mind that close of a million soldiers bodies without sepulture (missing in action) are still burried in the red zone (total destruction area), smashed and melted in mud for ever… He survived, I am living, they died… A qui la faute? Messieurs Bonsoir…
Today was a very nice day
We have been in family and with friend to bathing at a river. We have been in the warm area near ibague, close to the small town PAYANDE to the river LUISA. But we found a secret entrance in a farm by talking with a very friendly local… So we arrive to this wonderful place without any one, except us.
I make benifit from this fact to paint, with : white limestone powder. Truly I love this technique I will comply a series of photography .
