Mathieu Bernard-Reymond

Date of birth : 1976

Country : France

The artist uses image processing software to present a disturbing landscape where the image of the landscape is formed from a single detail, in this case the people. Their environment is a direct consequence of their existence, and the colours of the landscape are their colours. In addition, the people are portrayed as visitors, just temporary figures and not inhabitants: Mathieu Bernard-Reymond wants to show a landscape in perpetual motion, and to this end toys with the viewer’s perceptions of both space and time, and of the real and unreal. From a vantage point which is more or less elevated, he can make the landscape more or less realistic, even if it remains an improbable vision.
