If my last works where “space scaled” …
This time, I intended to develop a “landscape scaled” proposition, questioning extents, boundaries, limits, horizon.
I love starting from a single line, using the traditional software’s 2D drawing’s tools + copy, paste, color, distort + layer’s disconnection… to produce a basic or complex texture which reveals an inherent spatiality while diving in it.
Quill’s (oculus studio’s software) quite infinite zoom ability allows us to generate virtual landscape. Immersing ourselves in virtual painting is an amazing experience, during which simple lines are easily becoming builts, hills, lakes, clouds…
But the hard thing is to go further
Going further is not an easy part and for that, I often feel the need to go OUT of the virtual space and virtual reality, looking at captures, snapshots on my computer before re-diving in it. Sometimes immersion is close to drowning that it becomes difficult to do part of it.
from that, it was essentially a question of erasing, to define the boundaries, to reveal what was hidden, to mix the strata.
