Art Exhibit – Phillipé Ducasse
Phillipé Ducasse is best known for using ink in his works to create fine lines and intricate details, infused with radically flowing backgrounds. His works have in common his intrigue of innovative technology and architecture and their relationship with the survivalist tendencies of flora and natural landscapes, which are common subjects in his work. As in the case of his series “Trees,” Phillipé seamlessly coheres plant and machine parts- reminiscent of historical didactic plant drawings- to convey the mutation of the natural into supernatural by means of modern advances. Phillipé magnifies diversity and interest in ordinary subject matter to “make people look a little closer,” a sentiment he uses to suggest the effects of a diminishing attention-span in the times of “fast”culture.
