UN DESSEIN DE BEAUTÉ
PHILIPPE DELAVEAU - BERNARD ALLIGAND
""The beautiful work adds to the world a design of beauty revealing to our eyes the shards of mystery which the steps of light delegate silently on the white walls."
Exaltation of the creation of a 17th century painting. Bernard Alligand's original works immerse us in chiaroscuro kitchens where refined feasts are prepared.
Unpublished poem accompanied by original works: details of still lifes from 17th century paintings photographed, digitized, retouched, printed on paper of different textures. Stamping using the carborundum engraving technique.
