With this series of monochrome feather art works entitled "Surfaces", the artist plays the material off against light to engage our senses around the issues of hunting trophies and wounds.
Black OceanJulien Vermeulen
It is the inner part of the feather (turkey wing), cut in arrow shape, that is exposed and gives the panel its shiny appearance under the influence of light. The deep black and movements drawn by the cut of the feathers suggest the power and infinity of the ocean.
This panel is a representation of the artist's work on the "Wall of Illusion" - a 20 m2 wall covered with feathers - to be discovered in the "Toguna" space of the Palais de Tokyo (Paris). Project designed with the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation and inaugurated in January 2018.
