Manolo Chretien is fascinated by the fantastic machines created to accelerate time and gain superpowers. Planes, cars, spaceships are the symbol of a world constantly moving and pushing boundaries. These metal objects are irresistibly attractive. They are the mirror of human ambition. Using an innovative technique of print on aluminium, the artist can make his pictures metal objects too - through which we are invited to reflect.
In his latest series 'anemorphoses', Manolo Chretien explores the symbiosis of light and water and the mechanical energy of sea waves - the ocean becoming a gigantic metallic engine.
Manolo Chretien (b.1966) lives and works in Blois. He is represented by several galleries in Paris, Brussels, Montreal, Singapore and in London with >french art studio since 2009.
