Eric Robin‘s “Over Sea” is a three dimensional composition of crumpled paper and gold leaf.
In this painting the artist uses a carefully prepared matte paper: gold leaf and painted with this unique ultramarine color. He cuts, folds and crumples with precise gestures. He glues in layers, creating a composition in relief full of subtlety, where the play of shadows accentuates the contrasts. It is in the vibrancy of the textures that one recognizes the formal signature of the artist.
The simple abstract structure of the rectangle combines harmoniously with the random and organic form of the folding. The duality between the velvet of the deep blue and the brightness of the gold is irresistible. At any time of day, light and shadow play gracefully in the depth of ultramarine and the roughness of the composition.
“Over Sea” is like diving into a dream!
