DUAL — STROMATOLITE

May 21, 2019 | Sources: Etienne Saint-Amant and Eric Dupont

Inspired by biodiversity, this work offers a synthesis of observations and reflections on one of the first forms of life to colonize the Earth 3.5 billion years ago, stromatolites (columnar structures built by bacteria) A subject of current and very important research in paleontology - because they are at once the depositories of the first traces of life and at the same time the first manifestations of this life -, we praise their crucial role in terrestrial development. We wish to express their importance regarding the creation of oxygen in the atmosphere that has allowed the explosion of different forms of life on Earth. Here, we propose an evocation of the ancient Earth and colonies of stromatolites transforming the atmosphere in a landscape both primitive and tormented.

We present the subject in a semi-abstract composition showing a skyline and geological elements in the foreground. This evocation of a landscape shows the obvious presence of stromatolites in the environment and emphasizes their share in the creation of the biosphere.

Because they are the ones who passionate us the most. Because they are the ones worth trying. Because they are filled with dreams and fantasies. Because we grow up through them and their disappointments ... And that we grow even more when, against all expectations, we realize them.

Often seen as a weed by our grandparents, milkweed contains many treasures. It is often the only food of the Monarch butterfly, its silk (called the silk of America) has remarkable insulating properties and it has many medicinal virtues.

DUAL Series

September 27, 2018 | Sources: Etienne Saint-Amant and Eric Dupont

I am very pleased to announce that the Dual series is now online (in the portfolio section)! This is a series that is made in collaboration with my friend artist and scientist Eric Dupont. They are all unique works, large formats in general and they are making all their sense in exhibition, because the composition is simultaneously 2D and 3D. It is a series that will be adaptable to the integration of art to the architecture following the specific projects of this niche. For more information, do not hesitate to contact us. Here is the synopsis of the series :



This series is rocked by the polymorphism of duality. First, it was born from the collaboration between a visual artist and an artist mathematician; both are also university scientists. They both explore the infinitely large and the infinitely small. One works with both algebra and geometry. The other discovers that his intuitive gestures and movements are intrinsically fractals. They combines emotion and aesthetics as well as movement and statism. They unite geology and life. The creative force of chaos is a driving force in their art. The distinction between figuration and abstraction fades away: it is necessary to nuance this spectrum. The rational and the emotional intertwine too. The composition is both 2D and 3D (you have to see the artworks live for the 3D).

The Dual series, created by Etienne Saint-Amant and Eric Dupont, supports the awareness for the protection of the biodiversity.
