Labokoff is a project born in 2007 where I explore interactions between photography and painting, real world and imagination, memories and reality.
My images are built around photographs that are picked in my personal collection: landscapes, nature, silhouettes…
These are individual memories but, through the choice of the photos , the way they are processed, and the minimalism of the resulting pictures, they become more universally evocative and can remain anybody a place, a memory, an emotion…
Painting is made of gouache or inks that are then digitally combined with photos, it is employed as textures, splatters or lines and shifts the images in a dreamy register. It brings vibrancy and add the strength of colors and shapes to raw photographs which creates a more subjective and poetic vision.
These are dreamed images trying to recreate a momentary emotion that anyone can feel in front of nature’s beauty, a particular architectural shape, a landscape passing by or the silhouette of a beloved one.
