This series explores the relation between visibility (as an aesthetic result), memory, movement, light and shapes through different positions of a woman’s body. I made these compositions with an “electrical feel” to them ; where the light could be seen as “electrons and waves” interacting with the model. While working on this series, i came across a magnificient review by Jude Rogers (for “The Quietus”) of the new Pet Shop Boys’ album “Electric” ; to quote her : “Earlier this year, I watched an interview with Ralf Hütter from 1981 in which he talked about electricity existing within us. My crap cribsheet: we are made of atoms. Atoms change and become charged. Electrons travel between them, and we are all electrical beings. Therefore music that has electrical charges and currents rushing right through it is not cold or removed from us: it is as human as we are. We live in an age where electronic music is hardwired into popular consciousness, but how funny it is that its roots have been in our own consciousnesses all along. Therefore, it's completely natural to respond to its positive and negative charges, to feel it strike like lightning, and shudder after its thunder roars.”
On the other hand, those “waves” are a visual allegory to my veins where memories of a past lover run. There is a line that divides each picture into a diptych. This line marks a separation since the lady in those photos and i, are no longer together. Therefore her memory haunts me with an alternation of “positive and negative charges” represented through the shifting moving contrasts between the blacks and whites within these photos.
