Thomas Tronel-Gauthier - La Mécanique des fluides

La Mécanique des fluides (Fluid Mechanics)
Gold leaf on resin
101 cm x 63 cm

La Mécanique des fluides (fluid mechanics) applies a work of craftsman to a natural motif, half-organic, half-mineral.
Crystallization of the backwash, the work in resin freezes the dynamics of the marine component, creating a strong contrast between the organic movement it captures and substance that resists the flow of which it slows.
Covered in gold leaf, the piece makes sacred this redundant movement, the naturalistic reading leaves a way for interpretation, more dreamlike, an archeology of the sacred.
