This series includes Mélanie’s abstract works. Free, vigorous lines create a world full of meanings that are offered to each viewer to internatilze and decode. Original materials and tools produce exceptional textures and rich surface. Simard buffs, sands, scratches, scrapes the aluminum sheet reaching a startling result. The metal surface becomes ground for new meanings and ideas to emerge and become experienced. Time is suspended and only the horizon line is left to connect you to reality.
