Woodcut reflections

It is a series that I made in my temporary studio in the Vallée, Brussels. One of my colleagues was giving wooden boards, dyed blue. I took some to explore the possibilities of the material. So I started to recolors: blue and the color of produce the forms that I had discovered in my digital images. I dug the wood with my cutter in order to play with the twothe wood underneath. The series represents a roundup that I had photographed with my phone in a fountain in Vence (Côte d'Azur). I painted these photos in the Sketch app on my phone. Then it became a motif, an autonomous form. So I transcribed it through different media.
