Desease, 30"x30"

 

The struggle of languages, Franglais, Spanish spoken in her living areas, Chinese in my art teaching area, German surrounding the French community as a child, mix up to express the mistakes and awkwardness of translation. Those distortions shape abstract territories designed thanks to a personal codified language. It interprets the connections I explore between forms, aesthetics and semantics.

Les séries réalisées dans le studio de San Francisco sont, comme l'ensemble du travail antérieur, lié au lieu de résidence, et ici à la récente installation en Californie. L'exploration de ce nouveau territoire prend la forme d’une cartographie personnelle, témoignant de l'impact que les lieux, les trajets spécifiques et les changements de langue ont sur la vie quotidienne.

Le jonglage des langues environnantes qui se mélangent dans la production plastique exprime les erreurs et les maladresses de traductions. Ces distorsions façonnent les territoires abstraits, conçus grâce à un langage codifié. Il interprète les connexions que j'explore entre formes, réflexion esthétique, et sémantique.

Ces peintures linguistiques sont réalisées avec des dons de peinture en bâtiment de San Francisco sur des toiles protection non tendues. Les œuvres peuvent alors être roulées comme des cartes ou repliées comme les toiles étaient originellement vendues.

The series created in the San Francisco studio are - as the entire previous work- connected with the location of residence, and here to the recent Californian set up. The exploration of this new territory takes form as a personal mapping, presenting the impact that places, specific paths and switch of languages have on the daily life.

The struggle of surrounding languages that mix up in the artworks expresses the mistakes and awkwardness of translation. Those distortions shape abstract territories designed thanks to a codified language. It interprets the connections that I explore between forms, aesthetics and semantics.

Those linguistic paintings are made with donated house paint from San Francisco on un-stretched drop cloth. The works can then be rolled as maps or re-folded as the cloth was originally sold.
