"(...) The Last Piece of Wasteland by Thomas Tronel Gauthier looks like a fossil of low tide in the North Sea, an aesthetic of fragment that can also be found in the series of Outremer (ultramarine) Paintings. These works all look like some kind of dark mineral plates, combining maritime wake to the idea of ​​an absence, a void, a desertion. In the first reading, we can take these patterns for a media discourse on water scarcity in the modern world, but the unique plasticity of these stories added for warning a strong desire to stimulate the imagination. The richness of the device is in large part in the indecision the texture of the object: sometimes pyroclastic lunar and cavernous, sometimes vegetable, venous and synaptic parts are played differences between fragment desolate land and new territory to invest the work of placing the negative horizon of expectation. Beyond the post-apocalyptic interpretation, futuristic assumption that seems to draw it falls within an applied science fiction, aesthetics marked as a poetry of mental reconstruction, while sober. The desert is indeed crystallization during a ruderal reconquest, as if the public innervait these minerals, struck his mental organicity to restore their lives. "
