Today Jean-Louis Aubert collects and scans ordinary objects, photographs, drawings, unexpected finds, creating images of amazing accuracy and a nearly pictorial rendering thus upsetting our perception of the most ordinary objects.
Jean-Louis lives in the south western of France.
A direct print of the visible
The objects directly laid on the lifted up scanner glass, are computerized against a dark background.
The scannographs thus obtained, are then worked, thanks to the graphic tablet into a multitude of coloured tones, cracks and blurs, visually coming close to the three-dimensional. They can be used as raw material for a straightforward and poetical interpretation or assembled into amazing and sometimes disturbing play montages.
Importation in Photoshop, 48 bits, resolution 2400 points or more according to the size of the objects.
The final image measures 60x60 cms in 300 points.
A technique serving imagination and dream
The technique never sticks to a single medium but adapts and serves an idea or an intuition.
The scannography, the photograph or the drawing let us perceive a privileged link with nature. Nature is omnipresent as a theme of course, but she is more.
Nature also invites herself in philosophical thoughts that gives great credit to ancient civilizations and to symbolics. She is considered as sacred particularly with the Irises, messengers of the Gods or the reliquaries, a means of representation also close to the surrealistic identity.
