Sylvie Melaçon

In creating digital images, I try to express the many dimensions that make up existence: the past, memories, landscapes, emotions. By integrating digitized pieces of my older creations, along with drawings and photos, I tell stories. I use photographs I inherited from my grandfather Jean (an artist) or photos from my own life. Images create themselves, becoming the language of interior spaces. I let them be. Like a song, an image possesses its own poetry. My work in plastic arts has always incorporated the concept of time.
Unlike stories, real life, when it has passed, inclines toward obscurity.” (Elena Ferrante)
