Olivier Tourlet Reflection (1)
Fine Art Photography
Reflexion The eye screwed on the lens become kaleidoscopePerseverance of inverted artwork of Lucien Clergue in sixties (First french photography academician),inspired by Dali since childhood , the evolution of the works of Miro and the study of colors by Kandinsky, in Reflexion i discovered a complex language to understand and rediscover incessantly. Born from contemplation of perpetual motion and the alchemy of elements, one day in the mirror space opened up and I thought I could touch the time. Dreamlike crossing where the subject is no longer the intention, but the point to exceed, becoming a material to succeed the transcription of wonderland . Reflections leading Reflections in an infinite kaleidoscope, were twilight “negative”in inverted colors and highlight in Indian ink, communing the fragile beauty of nature to give us to understand, the most fantastic is not something we can touch . This Reflection, magic wave, is a spiritual timeless message evolving in a perpetual dream with no pictorial limit, in a calligraphic returning to roots of lyrical abstraction.
Biography Born in 1965 in Paris, self-taught photographer by destiny from the age of 10 when I won my first amateur contest on duet with my brother in 1975. He became a photographer himself early than I, but died unfortunately much too soon, 15 years ago. This underlying passion became a deep desire to create anchored in my eyes. An art of living,of seeing and duty to never forget that the sun never rises for nothing and it makes life infinitely more beautiful. After few exhibitions in Paris from 2006, I recently had the honor to show my work to Mr Henry Loyrette, Louvre Museum President, who became my most import supporter so far.
