artist statement

lucie payoux builds spaces by associating 3d software with painting. those techniques can be both paradoxal and complementary through the dialectic between virtuality and gesture. through them lucie questions scientific representations of the non-human. science can create sterile images of ecosystems as well as reveal their unknown and fascinating sides. inspired by this scientific «bipolarity» lucie represents synthetic organisms. instead of co-existing in a landscape, fauna and flora are composed, like fruits for a still life. the wilderness becomes a garden, a utopia which is flourishing only because of its artificiality.
