Dual Paintings (2014)

The Dual Paintings series unveils the networked structure of the space-time of color. Each diptych relates an emblematic painting with its associated colored graph, which connects areas of similar colors to each other. The work establishes a duality between the continuous, analog space of color, and the finitude of digital networks.

« Là où la carte découpe, le récit traverse », Michel de Certeau

La série des Dual Paintings révèle la structure en réseau de l’espace-temps de la couleur. Chaque Dual Painting consiste en un diptyque qui met en regard une peinture emblématique de l’histoire de l’art avec son graphe coloré associé. Ce graphe relie les plages de couleurs similaires entre elles. L’œuvre met en dualité l’espace infini, continu, analogique de la couleur, avec la finitude des réseaux du monde digital.

An ongoing project since 2014.
