DIALOGICAL PAINTINGS are one of my main ongoing projects. The “PDs” are experiences of dialogue with projection and painting. My guest and I, we express ourselves in sync, with paint and brush on paper. Both actions are captured by camera and projected in real time on the painting of the other party. What remains of the action when it ends, is its marks, its traces. In this work, I search for the implications and limits of face-to-face and virtual communications in relationships between people.
Quarantine prevents me from meeting other people to do dialogues. I started to create COLOR PALETTES inspired by the previous DIALOGICAL PAINTINGS. I identify the colors from the dialogues, observe the different associations, and create new compositions. The palettes are the result, no longer of a free gesture in tune with the expression of another person (as in the “DPs”), but of a solitary and organized geometric construction. I place myself in the position of a “voyeur” who peeks at the intimacy of colors and the dialogues they establish among themselves.
