Anemorphosis or the wind artwork
« Anemorphosis » from the ancient greek « anemos » « wind » and « morphos » « shape », word which significates the wind artwork.
is a plastic artist photographer, kite-surfer, he lives and works at Blois.
Son of a pilot who has grown up near an air base, he has been fascinated, very young by aeronautics and its fantastic machines created to accelerate time. Planes, cars and rockets are the symbols of a moving world which pushes back all the frontiers.
tracks down metal and more specifically the aluminium which he photographs with conviction, it’s the read thread of his work which he names as “Aluminations”
and defines as a clever mix of aluminium, illuminations and hallucinations...
To translate better the impact of the light, he uses an innovating technique : the exposure on brushed aluminium. A metallic effect to seize the moment. His “aluminations” mirror the human ambition.
Today, those cabins from now on inert, abandoned on airfields are condemned to be dismembered. From its scattered pieces, we salvage aluminium… which will be recycled and will be used as support for Manolo’s prints. Those pictures get technological and artistic prowess that made up these design wonders listed as “Confidential Defence” then. Its bumps and wounds (scarified fuselages, exhausted jets, opacified cockpits, drawn out rivets) show its former life. Symbols of a powerful and avant-gardist air force relegated to the level of still sculptures pinned to the ground forever but maybe more sparkling than in the past.
The artist has extended his photographic research on fluid and reflections by investigating dynamics of waves and incoming tides. Through his eyes, the ocean becomes a metallic wave, a natural mechanic. Still fascinated by the movement, he is permanently looking for light and its reflections. Here, the wave, sky mirror is his search support.
His artworks are defended in Europe, United-States and Asia.
