This Collage that is part of a series ironically exploring the figure of the painter as an armored characters, I consider them as contemporary "Vanitas". I only use found images from magazines and books to create these pieces, it's part of the constraint I give myself in the creative process: it's a low tech approach. I could digitally make those images but it wouldn't have the same impact. I like to deal with scale, colour and pattern as I cut them out. One of my aim is to create a mental space made of combinations for the viewer to interpret. There's mystery and no obvious meaning.
