This series witness a current ecological concern about the fate of nature.
The "Natures Mortes" bring art expectations back to historical tradition of Plato ‘s imitation of nature- With a cynical vision of the extrapolation of the destruction of our world by mankind the exhibtion invites everyone to trample on the surface, metaphorically emphasizing the destruction of earth by mankind. Bleak vision of hollow volumes, empty of their substance and hopefully provocative, sometimes enlightened by snap shot visions… the shiny red surface of an apple of our colourful world. Imposing this vision, hoping to create change in our passivity.
NATURE MORTE à L'ANANAS
LES NATURES MORTES bring art expectations back to historical tradition of Plato ‘s imitation of nature. These hollow, flabby volumes, emptied from their substance, while also recalling XVIII‘s century art of silhouette, reflect the liquid modernity of philosopher Zigmund Bauman.
Some escape the nostalgic shadows of past centuries for a glittering present.
Some of them are kinetic, illustrating Reuss quest for morphing paradoxes in one piece, the past and the future, stillness and movement.
