Contrary to canvas, cardboard has an actual thickness and in all my series, I use this thickness. But in this serie, I use it even more : I carve its thickness deeper than usual and I burn the cardboard. In other words, through these two processes, I sculpt my paintings. Another way of scuplting my paintings that I use in this serie is to incorporate worn materials and objects into my paintings.
All these processes allow us to touch time. I favor materials viewed as non-noble (cardboard, plaster, sheet metal, plastic...) precisely because of their vulnerability to time.
