The “Jungles” series is an exploration of nature as raw material. Olivia Lavergne imagines and makes the territory hers. Her way of seeing things transforms nature which becomes a photographic painting. The choice of dense and luxuriant colors – ochre, green, blue – standardized in the painting of landscapes, the light device – the chiaroscuro – strengthens the unusual aspect of the scenes. This series is about the exploration of a territory, an esthetic redefining of the landscape. Olivia Lavergne is interested in the green and luxuriant vegetation, the dense forest, with the jungle as a starting point.
