Nicolas J Touron
brooklyn, NY

Genre:Illustration;


ARTIST STATEMENT: All the works visible in the pictures are expressions of my desire to tell stories. The works are snapshots of absurd adventures and actions of objects, colors, melting shapes and phantasmagoric animals. Clues are given that there is a reason for these actions but like in our universe these reasons are obscure and constantly slip through our fingers. Picture 03 is the physicalization of one of the phantasmagoric animal from my imagined universe. Constructed as a giant children’s 3D puzzle the 2 bodied Bamby stands between worlds. Picture 06 is another attempt at bringing my imagined universe into our own world. The hutch though an “homey” piece of furniture is more adapted to my imagined universe than to our world. Every object displayed in the hutch tells a story. Long before their capitalization by Disney and on-screen animators, tales were told to children for a much more serious purpose. This narrative form, best exemplified in stories like “Hansel and Gretel,” served to prepare the young for a life of malnutrition, disease, poverty and exploitation at the hands of feudal lords. Likewise my works are visual fables, but contrary to the classic fables, mine pass no blame, contain no call to action, and offer no solutions. They simply exist on landscapes of absurdity, collapsing and deforming due to a lack of objectives and destinations, reflections of life.
