Visually has an appetite, trains memory and consumes imagination. All that we saw yesterday or ten years ago is shaped experience, laid millions of parts in our perception. Every findings on the spot. Imagine that happened a great mistake and certainty are mixed in an unpredictable fantastic collaboration.
When a vegetal artist Duy Anh Nhan Duc and photographer Isabelle Chapuis play their visual sonnets, then surrealism finds the most elegant notes. Thus was born the series “Etamine” and “Dandelion” . In “Etamine” somewhat androgynous man is decorated in black and red and purple, sometimes yellow. Unexpected compositions thousand petals: pinks, anemones, irises and chrysanthemums merge with the skin. Particles of colors reminiscent of feathers, as if strange birds cleaned before the camera.
“Dandelion” feels more fragile, frozen in time, as if the woman model holding her breath. Have stood on a black background dandelion seeds incredibly gentle, snow or fog. They are ephemeral, pausing for a moment before the wind and it’ll fade.
Duy Anh Nhan Duc elaborates vegetable art very peculiar … It merges plants with human bodies, integrates them with objects, drawings and integrates with every image like a short film. Through his work, he weaves poetic world where herbs operates by human. Isabelle Chapuis focused on art for art’s sake: her creation has all chance to cause genuine feelings of spectators, but she appeals only to the emotional component. Fleeting aesthetics, according to the photographer does not have the right to put a connoisseur in moral dependence. Hence the ease and charm of her work.
