Gregory Markovic (France)
Grégory Markovic’s skies come from a dual research: the descriptive of a nature in constant renewal, but also the projection of our own passions. Because, paradoxically, the clouds are materialized by subtracting materials: black charcoal thickly applied on the entire surface of the white paper, then brushed and unified, then partially erased, sanded, removed to reveal the sensation of a pattern. Forms arise from the darkness, the artist “goes deeply into the light.”
