Gallery Nature & Culture
In recent years, I undertook a deep research to illustrate and highlight not only the beauty but also the complementarity between Nature and Culture. Several lectures on calligraphy, both in the different styles of writing as their evolution over time, allowed me to deepen my knowledge in calligraphy.
I finally chose the chinese cursive style to illustrate this relationship between Nature and Culture. This came to me not only because of his seniority, estimated dates from ± 5000 years, but also by its cursive style 'Coashu' also called 'Grass style' which means crazy writing or free style. From this, what better could be required to join the herbs shapes and movements near St-Lawrence River (Quebec, Canada).
Within this photographic series, a Coashu style calligraphy is integrated in the grass shadows on the snow. Inside each of the photographs, the calligraphy correspond to the title of the photographic work.
