“Sylve cosmique opus 1” Triptych
Éric Petr, 2o22 / copy #1/3

Presentation : Triptych of 48 x 100 cm composed of three photographic’s tableau.
Technique: Digital camera and pigment ink print on satin-finish fine art paper.

From these threads of light, which flow over our forests as water spreads life, are hidden the secret codes of the creative matter that reproduces the universes. This powerful energy seeps into the interstices of nature and its cosmic sap works to shape the universe in the matrix.
This first opus was born from this reflection on the life-giving power of the forest but also on its vulnerability.
This new project will write its next opuses to reveal the forest in its most poetic form but also to make the reader aware of this equation: vitality / fragility.
