Mathieu Rousseau presents his vision on the identity of Man 2019 and the lineage of technologies and information on him as well as the relationships which he maintains. He creates hybrid images that evoke the distortion between reality and digital. This brings us back to the complexity of human relationships. The image of a "being", sometimes presented in animal form or characters occupies the central place of this project. These are the intrinsic characteristics of power from each one that the painter likes to emphasize. The artist gathers different codes - the presence of lines, rectangular and triangular shapes, spikes, the presence of brilliant color that represents the perception of the painter - to better understand the complexity of communications while remaining on the threshold of a message that wants to carry cultural mediation.
Distorsion is a series of creations which lead to reflection on different facets of man and how to demonstrate his feelings to those around him. This series can also, from another angle, push the observer to put himself in the place of the character. Each person is confronted with demonstrating his inner truth or hiding it. This series of paintings leads us into the mysterious universe where dreams and reality merge. Each painting is a reflection that tries to demonstrate, in a caption form, the reality that lies dormant in us. It takes us on a journey where the magic of the night reveals to us these most wonderful secrets.
