The Smokes”
It is the carbon deposit of a flame that will give “body” to what Etienne Gros called “the fumes”.
He can use the flame of a candle or a kerosene lamp. In an unpredictable way, with extreme lightness and softness but also great fragility, shapes will be deposited on the white sheet of paper. Without a brush, pencil or anything else that might resemble the painter’s accessories is used. He draws with the volutes of smoke and lets himself be amazed by the randomness that the flame offers him.
Like Aladdin, he frees the geniuses from his lamps and takes us far, much further, into an ancestral world.
