A high angle, a zone boundary, color saturation succinct. And here we are again with a meeting point between the large and the small.
AboutContemporary artist, Raphael Navarro works mainly in photography for over 10 years. French, born in the Netherlands in 1979, he made his art studies in France, where he engaged in the production of photographic images. His work is strongly rooted in issues related to this medium, location, time, light ... If it works for other media is necessarily a photographic point of view.
In short, Raphael Navarro capture fragments of time and space. A "disruptive" element in the pictures, will allow him to re-contextualize them, to change perspective. In the end, the evidence would be obvious to some, surprising others, "It's a fact of pure experience that there is no space without time or time without space." (Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki).

It is not nothing, it is not empty. There is always something. The world delights in constant flux and unmanageable signs and symbols. In a catalog of pictures permanent, some seek the beginnings of a desert landscape where cancellation codes may exist.
The images produced (photographs, videos, installations) offer simple subjects, there report on investigations of an individual in the space through which it passes.
The horizon, the vanishing point, yet little considered as tools of narration, offer themselves as forms open to dialogue. The story in a linear constant freezes a point (Figure heap architecture, ...) to emphasize the infinite space escaping from either side of the frame, from the point of view of the artist. The speech is distilled in parts of ping-pong between what is visible in images and titles served: forms hopes to reach what is not accessible or at least not yet. As if the mountain is revealed little or is that all everyone, we are not ready to see.
The work is not monumental, and when it spreads it's to become brittle, between clay and paper. Building a perspective, an impossible ideal city.
In the game which is the subject between artist and landscape,the man wins like a large stone Buddha, frozen, hidden somewhere between a latitude and longitude, he erects meditative way, aphasia huge billboards that make a story that creeps indefinitely in motion.
Art tries to find space for a few moments as if it was facing an ephemeral and virtuality.
Julien Cadoret, 2009.
