For a few weeks I haven’t written anything here. Without doubt I had to digest my exhibition, get back to work. And then I reintegrated my studio where I settled for the summer.
Today I want to talk about a strange collage that required only minimal manipulation. Normally, my collages are the result of many interventions that seek to push the image to its culmination, in the manner of a large canvas, eg. in the no. 182.
But here, it was obvious from the beginning: that portion of a baby elephant made a head that fitted exactly the large double page in front of me. Adding another head and choose the location of the hand with sharp nails was fast. And voila! One of my biggest collages was born! And what about this picture? Above all that I was probably not loved by my mother in the manner of the scene depicted here. I have no recollection of such an act, but a caress with the back of the hand on my cheek "because it was more hygienic (so) ...". And also how I felt during part of my adolescence (when pictures from this time show me in a rather flattering look) without this tender look that beautifies the one that is looked on. Fortunately I have experienced loving glances later, but there is a lack, a dissatisfaction.
