About The Artwork

Original print from a special limited edition of 10 plus 2 artist proofs. This work is printed on Baryta Ilford Gold Mono silk 270 grammes paper, using archival black pigment inks only which sets the highest definition and deep black as well as rich scale of greys. Each print includes a certificate of authenticity, is signed in the back and numbered. There is a 3 cm white boarder included in the print size of 60X90 cm. The print will be processed under my control in my favorite professional photo lab which works for galleries, museums, and private collections. This photograph is part of a work that is the sequel made in the Koyasan Mountains of an exhibition named "Vacarmes" which took place in Bangkok in 2015. "Vacarmes" means "noisy, vociferous" in French my mother language. I chose antinomies words to destabilize the spectators as you feel more serenity than loudness in this landscape. My actual work is inspired by European romantique painters of the 19 century as well as some early American, German and Russian black and white expressionist and pictoralist photography. I Don't see when I take the photograph. I feel. I discover what i did later, and work on my prints to transmit my original feeling. I live in Asia now and I think my photography instills a lot of European melancholy in a region of the world that is spared it. The silence, the long time, the enjoyment of the passing time has become a luxury as well as the luxurious nature. Japanese culture greatly appreciates the rains of lights that fall in summer and winter from the treetops. They call it the "Shirinyoku". I spent a lot of time in the Japanese mountains where the temples and gardens imbue you with a calm and a reflection that I could also find in certain monasteries in Europe. Photography gives me the possibility of floating concentration which is also present in Zen archery. This is the feeling I work on for the last ten years now and this photograph is the first one on several series I will propose you on Saatchi Art site.

BIOGRAPHY. Philippe Moisan was born in the sixties, child of two graphic artists, he spent his time playing amid their drawings, photographs, typefaces, and listened to the stories told by their painter and photographer friends, Bernard Gorsky, Claude Sauvageot, or Robert Doisneau. From 1978 to 1981 he studied French and philosophy in Versailles. In 1984 during the Cold War, Philippe spent a year in Berlin as part of his military duty, hung out in the Dahlem museum, and listened Karajan at the Philharmony, Wagner’s Tetralogy, sheltered from an icy winter traveling through wintry German countryside and forests by train was to become a powerful visual marker for his future photographs. Moisan rediscovered these sensations later in painter Caspar David Friedrich’s work on Nature. He studied art history at the École du Louvre with egyptologist Christiane Desroches-Noblecourt as well as those taught by Pierre Amiet, curator of the Guimet Museum, and a specialist of East Asian arts. He spent the early part of his career life giving lectures and museum visits to people interested in art and history. Later on, he had a successful decade working in fashion and lifestyle photography for magazines and advertising agencies in Europe and USA. Later, following the advice and instructions of Mr. Georges Fèvres, official proofer of photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson and Josef Koudelka, he absorbed the subtleties of black and white photography printing. Sao Paulo (Brazil) 2001, a period of twelve decisive years began, which gave birth to the photographic allegory from which Philippe still draws his inspiration today. While still working for the fashion world and for advertising agencies, he decided it was time to take a significant turn and to devote more and more time to photographic vagrancies and wanderings during his travels. Immersed in Sao Paulo’s architectural verticality, Philippe began to undertake a long series of portraits of strange characters haunting the streets and nights of this sprawling metropolis.Turn fifty, he quit commercial photography, travelled the world extensively, and pursued life photography which is closest to his heart. “I like to portray life as it is. If you want peace of mind, you need to embrace truths and accept life as it is with all its beauty and imperfections,” Moisan said.
