‘For several years, my work has been based on the artistic relationship that my wife and I have developed. Indeed, the digital correspondence that we maintain energises her role as a muse. This allows me to broaden the field of reflection and research underpinning my painting.’ says Crespel.
The Deep Pola series is not only a photographic conversation between the couple portraying their reconciliation and the pleasure of their intrigue, harmonized identities, but are also a means for Crespel to question on the representation of Woman. He, depicting images of independent and passionate women who play the roles that society is willing to give them, finds answers through his paintings. He immerses himself physically in his art without being inhibited by conceptual, semantic and rational concerns.
‘Deep Pola mocks the binary opposition between the traditional couple and progressive relationship with renewed seduction and shared obsession. The same applies to the painter and his muse, the oil paintings and the polaroid,’ he continues.
