Noemie Merono I Artist Statement
I do not rank as an artist but as an illustrator.
I have no artistic concept, I reproduce the images that interest me, I associate and transform them so they tell a new story.
The result is a mixture, a mass, whose elements overlap, break and answer, where most singular details, hidden in this cluster appear. This sweltering and chaotic accumulation gives to the incongruous elements their importance.
This confusion tends to create discomfort and unease that express my feelings, my report to the representation to images. It is a work on the opposition between pleasure and displeasure, beautiful and ugly, and the notion of aesthetics.
