Here is another digital painting from my new series called “D’un souffle à l’autre.” (From a breath to another). As most of my digital paintings, it was created with the help of Corel Painter

Unlike my digital paintings of the last two years, this time my goal is not to play with effects of texture, but to explore geometric shapes and dynamic movements created by these shapes.

What comes first to my mind when I think about geometry, it is the simple, flat shapes of mathematics classes: squares, rectangles, circles, triangles and those irregular shapes. Then I see in my mind the notion of volume and 3D, but all that remains strangely static in my mind. Perhaps is it also the case for you.

Nevertheless, in everyday life, we are surrounded by geometric shapes in motion. We really became aware of it when we learn to draw or do photography. Look at the images below and see how the head is actually a sphere or how the silhouette of a dog can be simplified to a triangular or oval according to its posture.

In the following video you will see even more obvious way the relationship between geometry and the human body.

Although it is an abstract, the digital painting “Au moindre souffle” suggests movement through the arrangement of geometric shapes, while the transparent layers give the illusion of volume. Two ways for me to make geometric shapes “moving” in my mind…
