SOLOs

The name SOLO in this context means an image which is complete by itself, and it is not part of a set of connecting images, either as a key or an excerpt.

 

Most of these images are created from scratch or nothing except to include the Golden rule and Parallel/Expansionist Color© as much as possible. Each line, curve, form, blend, color, light, is designed to complement the expansionist sphere, a fluid marriage of the vertical with the horizontal circle. Letting the thought process move freely within the sphere is a priority. The visual sensory information of these connecting images aims at reducing the loss of cerebral energy in order to stimulate exploration as explained in the “Mass in B minor” of Bach or the late quartets of Beethoven, etc.

 

The color images are classified parallel because each element uses only one family of colors. The parallel principle is sometimes used in the organization of the forms/textures of black & white and color images. These elements are complementary in order to form unity. The colors of the virtual images are not the same as the originals because the virtual technology mixes black with the colors. No black was used in the originals and several use pure color at a level as high as 95%.

 

This virtual presentation is used for explanations, and it is similar to looking at an image from the outside instead of within. It does not duplicate the original anti time experience of several of the originals. These images of high level of visual communication are part of this web site to support the game Vitockey, conceived from the same universal principles.

 

These images are all handmade except for several of the black & white drawings beginning in the early 1980s. Considering the difficulty in achieving the style of these images (curve, nuances, light, etc) it was necessary to make the use of both hands equally (become ambidextrous).

 

Techniques used:

Drawing; charcoal, graphite, dry pastel (to have mastered this technique to a very high level), oil pastel, lead (including a new technique), colored pencils…

Engraving; Serigraphy, lithography, viscosity etching.

Painting; gouache, water, acrylic, alkyd, oil…

Sculpture; wood, aluminum casting. 

Virtual; 2 D and some 3D.

  

Their format varies between 10 X 10 cm in height and 155 X 200 cm in length. In this presentation between 10 X 980 pixels in height and 1000 X 14000 in width (right to left, vertical or horizontal and vice versa). Depending on their format, the majority must be viewed with reduced light. Please view exhibitions.

 

P.S The great majority of these images have never been seen in public, partly because of their high level of visual communication (conservation of cerebral  energy in order to stimulate exploration) and the difficulty of collaboration with the leaders of visual sensory information.

NOTICE, when you have two buttons:

LEFT BUTTON: The files are for reduced performance computers, to keep the fonts clear, increase the image size by approximately 15%. 

RIGHT BUTTON: For medium and high performance computers. The fonts will stay clear at any size.

There might be a slight difference in color between the two. 

The passage from some of the small images to the others inside the different files is not as fluid or complementary as the natural elements described in TRANSITION or the connecting images 2-10, 12-40 and 48-60 (handmade images). This will result in some minimal cerebral energy loss because the images are small and STATIC.

The following list of files can help introducing the definition of unified sensory information.

The images in this section are self explanatory, the minimal explanations are in French, accompanied by an RTF. file

Personal approach to two dimensional images:

A combination of forms/color/light aimed at reproducing a sphere as viewed from the inside. It is necessary to experience the space between the forms in order to find the required connections for attaining an environment as real as a 3D object. What one calls a trompe l’œil is actually a technique that makes it possible for the thought process to move freely inside the image and to eventually find for solutions.

From personal experience, being ambidextrous can play an important role towards this.

The organization in the images done by Ingres, La Tour, Rembrandt… aim at reaching dimensions beyond the image, including the author.

Personal approach to the three dimensional images:

The majority of these forms (wood) are conceived from nothing, except to create forms that can be cast into larger format, in metals such as aluminum, iron, bronze. These forms aim at reproducing an organization of visual sensory information that lets the thought process explore.

S (sculpture) means the use of only one form in an open environment to reproduce a sphere seen from the outside or the inside depending of its format. Materials used (variety of wood)

AS (sculptural organization) means the use of 2 or more forms on a base in an open environment to reproduce a sphere seen from the outside or the inside depending of its format. Materials used (wood - acrylic  - paper - pencils…)

AT (total organization) means the marriage of the horizontal circle (walls) with the vertical (floor and ceiling) including the light in order to reproduce a sphere. Materials used (wood - acrylic - paper pencils - electricity…)

HAUT

Sensory information of everyday life is the accumulation of personal experiences and those shared with others.

Theory: Unified sensory information of a parallel environment that lets the participants progress toward knowledge.

Theory: Disconnected sensory information of a non parallel environment that forces the participants to almost constantly try to find the parts that can ease passage between the unprepared oppositions

 (the "anything goes" or almost).

In the images above, 3 replicas of  "Family", the smallest form symbolizes a new born child or innocence. The curve facilitates the transition from LARGE (mother and father) to SMALL (the child), center (pine and white wood) and the sides (pine and virtual), 1984-2007.

It is an excerpt from the unique connecting image 10 B.

Unique because a sculpture (3 D) is enlarged using drawings (2 D). Explanations in French accompanied by a word file for translation.

The seven images are in a zip file, (505 kb).

More than 80,000 hours of research, mainly in solitude, brought me to the following conclusion:

Sensory information will play a key role toward global unification.
