CRINKLE CRUSH series by Dorothée Recker is avalaible at 3.500 euros 

Started in 2016, Crinkle Crush series is based on random. The original process is diverted by the crumpling of the unstreteched canvas which, depending on its nature, reacts differently to the trampling of Dorothee Recker. The project involved for Tides, Quicksands and Tropiques series consists of an act of reappropriation.  The artist crumbles and cheerfully crushes the oil on canvas to highlight hypothetical aspect of any contemporary creation.

The subtitles used ("dawn", "twilight" and "vega") remind us of the artist's search for chromatic imprints.
