A statement

My work is about the evolution of painting in a networked environment, both physical and digital, present and distant, in time and space. I make what i call variable paintings. They address classical themes such as Landscape or Still life. These paintings are not paintings in the sense of concrete objects, but digital pictures produced online by networked devices. This approach does not exclude the possibility of making physical objects from digital pictures, but the composition of these pictures is made online and should primarily be seen online, for example projected in an exhibition space connected to the internet. All devices are built on almost the same model. Visual sensors (eg: photography, stills from video) are taking pictures in an environment, these pictures are transformed by online softwares and then shown to the spectator. Variations in this main model allow each device to address more specific problematics in the field of networked painting.
