Africa : Blue Mirages Collection
Photographic art is here defined not by the aesthetic properties of images, but by the concept or idea of art. Reflection on the language of works, philosophy replaces the aesthetics of works. Surrealist photographic art is an intellectual approach that shows less than it evokes. The first requirement of this collection of blue mirages is to analyze what allows art to be art with the intellectual messages of the survival of the desert areas and of the nomads who inhabit these lands where water is the source of life. The dunes and the azure here make up the pictorial universe of the nomadic artist, with magical blues and golden furrows, paintings between abstraction, purity, and mysticism that give off a scent of infinity. In these photographic pictorial works, we find blue highlights, emphasizing shapes or accentuating reliefs subject to the problem of water supply. Images of rare purity taken by the artist to the four corners of the deserts of the world reworked to establish his personality for a sustained tribute paid to these sandy landscapes.
