Raoul PIctor "Raoul Pictor cherche son style June 93" Birds
Original Unique Print no 2 june 14, 1993 - inkjet print, A4
«Raoul Pictor cherche son style...» is an installation consisting of a computer (Mac LC), a 12” color screen and a color inkjet printer (HP Deskwriter C). The software was created using Macro-media Director.In a generative, non-linear animation, we see a painter (Raoul Pictor) living and working in
his studio. It is represented in a simple way, close to the cartoon. We see him painting, pacing, thinking, playing the piano, having a drink, reading, mixing his colors... The sequence of theseactivities is non-linear, the sequence lasts a few 2-3 minutes before Raoul Pictor does not consider his painting finished. It should be noted that we do not see what he paints; the painting, placed on his easel, is only visible from behind.
The painter grabs the painting and disappears through the side door represented by a black shape. It is at this moment that the printer starts to print and deliver Raoul Pictor’s work into the real world. Each composition is unique, dated, numbered and signed. Once printed, the painter
returns to the workshop through the side door, places his canvas on the easel and a new sequence begins to create a new painting.
