BAPTISTE VANWEYDEVELDT - PAINTING, PRINTS, SEVERAL SIZES, 2 FINISHES,
Born in 1978 in Lille. currently lives in Caen, France.
"... I situate my work between a laboratory of forms (volume search through drawing, painting and sculpture) and a tendency to DIY (recycling objects and found materials, transforming their uses, reinvesting their signs and questions of their subjects).
I approach several mediums at once to extend the creative process to other areas of research: anthropology, natural sciences, etc.
Pooling the two functions as a small world with its own flow of energies.
In general, I start with a series of sketches, notes and diagrams.
I also rely on my reading, on a lot of images, which I eat with bulimia. I exhaust their meanings until there is emulsion.
Which may explain the dreamy but also saturated appearance of my installations.
Without cultivating a pessimistic view of the world, I still question our future through figures that are close to us, towards an imaginary that I wish to collective; it's an opening on a composition with multiple perspectives.
My recurring themes are environmental around the domus (house, private sphere / public sphere, hospital, etc.) and the expanded living, according to a spatial questioning centered on energy flows, on magnetism and a set of enigmatic correlations. .. "
