Nudity holds a special place in the work of Georges Dumas. Due to its immediate and universal apprehension and beyond any cultural tradition and of social or historical codification, the naked body is what humanity has irreducible common denominator. Slender, picked up, skinny, fat, angular, round, straight or curved, the body is the ultimate mirror of our human condition, this perishable flesh which is the sign of our shared identity.
To get as close to universal aim at the heart of his approach, Georges Dumas supported the Aristotelian view that art must imitate nature. Therefore, two techniques are imposed on him the sculpture "realist" of Greco-Latin inspiration, and photography, mimetic medium par excellence. Sculpture, substituting wood and stone to flesh it purports to imitate, abolished skin color differences and thus the distance between the peoples of each other the benefit of the similarity in morphology that unites ; photography, by its mechanical objectivity captures the body as it is, without distortion, without embellishment.
The merger of the two techniques, made possible by the digital tool, lays the foundation for a renewed approach to nude, halfway between statuary regards matter, painting in terms of staging and photography about the esthetic. In this profound re-creation done by computer graphics, the pixel becomes the new building block, the new basic element of visual grammar used to represent the human body; it ends losing its organic nature and is transfigured under the onslaught of oversized pixels dislocate it and deconstruct.
Do not stay more than petrified figures, faceless - because the face singles - attacked from all sides by digital squares that take their autonomy on the canvas materializing with acrylic paint.
