MY EXHIBITED ARTWORK


The two exhibited works are part of a short photographic novella「ささやき」produced in Japan in May 2023.

ささやき (Sasayaki), in Japanese, means “Murmur”, the title of the theme “Murmures” in French.

These photographs are, for those who know how to listen to silence, the murmur of nature.

While my photographic artwork tirelessly questions the murmurs of the universe, I did not think that the waves that I captured that night in Kanazawa, in dialogue with the moon, transmitted to me a vibration heralding the 6.5 magnitude earthquake which occurred a few hours later, on May 5, 2023 at 2:42 p.m. in Ishikawa Prefecture.

Everything is just a murmur of these waves which constantly pass through us and transmit to us in their infinite trajectory, the echo of the World, if indeed we can interpret it.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK EXHIBITED

“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.
