Description

MONADE IN THE MORNING

A monad full of dew and new ink, I had returned to my studio the day before and wanted to try a different, non-figurative graphic work. I cut out tools in thick paper, to spread the ink without a brush, without hands, a form between the delicate fan and the efficient trowel.
The tool-paper becomes impregnated with ink and unravels as I gesture, traces begin to populate the monad.

I added drops of distilled water to the exposure, which marked a very soft blue gradation, the entrance of the monad, on the top left.
The monad is dense, with intense blues and little emptiness inside.

This cyanography is the first monad, which appeared on a beautiful morning in April 2020.

 

MONADAZ

The monad, a unit, a basic cell.

This notion of Greek philosophy, taken up in biology, was then adopted by modern philosophers to explain the universe. LEIBNIZ is the one who brought it back to light in 1714 with MONADOLOGY.

I retain an understanding of the world through monads, autonomous entities that combine in harmony. My workshop is a philo-bio-cyano laboratory where I found monads, a whole collection, the #MONADAZ. Each one is a microcosm that contains a diversity of blues, textures and features.

The monad, a unity, an exploration of abstract art.
