Propagation / Confinement is a series of paintings on canvas I made during this COVID-19 period.
The first one is titled Propagation and is entirely painted with water on a photographic emulsion composed of potassium ferricyanide and ammonium ferric citrate. The emulsion is still “trapped” on the canvas, making them “living” paintings that may evolve over time. The size of each painting is 60×85 cm.
The second one is titled Confinement. Black acrylic paint and plaster was used to paint this series. The plaster is fixed on the surface of the canvas, in a meticulous balance between fragility and sturdiness. The size of each painting is 50×70 cm.
