"... This work is one of the first environmental paintants, and therefore a tour de force on how to tell a story through space time.  The work deals with the evolution of violence in relation to pictorial evolution.  It uses notions of curvilinear spatial support that dynamizes, contracts or expands travel times. Micro macro used simultaneously. Soft and violent transitions. Multiple nests of themes development. Changing materials in development.  The work covers about 100 meters from the inside of a museum, leaving it to the urban space. The work forms through physical cuts and images, circulation for the viewer. Like a passage or fold, its spatial structure echoes the urban structure, beyond the confines of the museum.  Its observation is possible from the train that passes in front of the museum by its four meters high, up to centimeters in its interior, by its tiny details ...
