FROM BEAST TO HUMANITY

This collage is quite funny because at first, I transformed a painting by sticking on it some animal - a sloth? - from the wilderness. I liked the contrast between animality and the golden cross, listening to Otis Taylor's House of Crosses. But then I felt that it was too close to the planet of apes style and I feared the visit of Charlton Heston's spectre. So I went back to basics, to the original painting, chasing the sloth and letting the human beast out. With collage, I prefer avoiding a style which is too close to pure illustration.

Ce collage est assez rigolo, car tout d'abord j'ai transformé une peinture en y collant un animal sauvage, je crois qu'ilé s'agit d'un paresseux. J'ai aimé le contraste entre la bestialité et la croix dorée tout en écoutant Otis Taylor "The House of Crosses". Mais j'ai vite senti que cela devenait trop à la sauce planète des singes et me mis à craindre l'apparition du spectre de Charlton Heston. Je suis donc revenu à l'oeuvre initiale, chassant le paresseux pour laisser la bête humaine se manifester.
En collage, je préfère éviter un style qui serait trop proche d'une simple illustration.
