Minerals (overview)

The ongoing series MINERALS is an examination of stereotyping – the hidden systems that inevitably drive human behavior in all cultures and societies. It was initially developed in the United States using references from American culture. The series was later reinterpreted to address a Japanese audience following a 2-month research residency at Tokyo Arts and Space. As a dual French/American citizen, I plan to extend the series to encompass references from the cultures of France and French-speaking nations.

American Minerals

“American Minerals” (2014-16) are a mashup of pop culture, sociology, scientific data and the raw beauty of stones. These large acrylic paintings show crystal shapes against the backdrop of scientific mineral data that has been reinterpreted as scales of human traits. Each mineral property (hard, dense, lustrous, etc.) is represented by the face of a widely recognized persona plucked from the spectrum of a contemporary American's cultural references. The American "Minerals" series was later redeveloped using faces that are famous in Japan, proving that – regardless of culture – a cliché, a stereotype or a façade always hides something more complex.
