Reptile skins printing roller on silk (1,60 x 3,60 m)
ESADS / Rouleau Compresseur in collaboration with LA COLAS
In the project of large format printing Chimera, I used a collection of heterogeneous elements. I got a variety of skin with scales that I have assembled, the legs of ostriches, Nile monitors lizards, crocodile tails. These were inked in gold and silver, placed temporarily on the ground and superimpose, then passed under a steamroller. Printed on pieces of silk, these skins are finally reconstructing a large monster, built from various kinds of skins. This construction has eclectic reading levels, and so, a temporality and a new dynamic.The viewer can approach the fabric to look at the details of the various skins, then stand back and observe all to discover the “great beast”!
