Châssis Toilé » Le Rire & La Tragédie». Hora Hora
The canvas board » The Laughter and The Tragedy » is realized in mixed technique, in the acrylic, the gouache, the vinyl and the sticking of two half-spheres of polystyrene painted in the acrylic.
It is the painting which I name «First side / reverse» because there are two pictures possible, in the same work.
The same face at present, but with two different expressions as you put it in «First side» or in «Reverse», » in the place » or «back to front» for some.
Here you will have the laughter in «First side» and the tragedy in «Reverse».
It is provided with two systems of catcher.
I wanted for a long time to represent these two state of soul and to be that are the laughter and the sensation of tragedy, but I wanted especially something retroactive in this work enter the work itself and the spectator…
Here, the laughter is almost derisive, The face carries (wears) a closed smile but in these eyes we can read some satisfaction, some satisfaction, the severity to see the scene (stage) which takes place. He (it) does not really laugh, he (it) smiles; he (it) is happy, but not just happy; he (it) is happy because he (it) takes place one scene (stage) in front of him who causes (provokes) him (her) this expression in the look.
Then questions settle (arise), by the spectator; on what looks this face to make it react so! !
The face of the tragedy; the «Reverse», the door in the look the mark (brand) of a tragedy, a bad sensation, he (it) looks drawn, encircle weigh under the eyes… The tragedy strikes him (it).
But also, the tragedy which takes place under his eyes marks him with this tragic look, the spectator is an actor of this tragedy…
I wanted to give completely different expressions in my «laughter» and my «tragedy» that those waited by the spectator.
So there is a shock, a reaction of these even spectators to see the «laughter» and the «tragedy», expressed with a look new and different from what they waited.
Because they are spectators or, but also actors of the expressions whom both faces have.
