Capitaine Flam Baise Moi!

Home / Category / Comme à La TV / Capitaine Flam Baise Moi!


The "Comme à la TV" series explores the theme of childhood's insecurity and self-doubt through the cartoons I used to watch on the French and Belgian television. In most of the pieces although colourful, and seemingly happy and fun, hides a lurking danger in the background. That danger is symbolised by “Batman”, which can be faintly or clearly seen blended with the composition.The layering digital technique used to construct the picture, gives the art work a fresco like patina that mimic visually the process of fading memories. Figures, forms and colours appear to have been washed out, bleached, erode, scrubbed by the passing of time. The cartoons are reduced to vague pictures evoking a sense of false nostalgia and inexorable decay. However, the interpretation is left open to the viewer.
