Nature & Culture

  • Prize
    Silver in Fine Art/Other
  • Photographer
    Yvon Jolivet

This photographic series pays homage to the human calligraphic's culture,
an heritage to the inspirating Nature all around us.

In recent years, I undertook a deep research to illustrate and highlight not
only the beauty but also the duality between nature and culture,
both in the different styles of writing as their evolution over time.

Choosing a cursive Chinese calligraphy came to me not only because of his
seniority, estimated dates from ± 5000 years, but also by its cursive style
'Caoshu' also called 'grass style'. From this, what better could be required
to join the natural herbs shapes their movements in the wind.

Within this photographic series, a Coashu style calligraphy is integrated
with grass shadows on the snow. Within each photograph, Caoshu style
calligraphy is integrated which is the title of the photograph.

Yvon Jolivet is an artist photographer from Quebec (Canada).

He is a professsional member of RAAV (Regroupement des artistes en arts visuels du Québec) and CARFAC (Canadian Artists Representation).

His approach to images is often akin to ideograms whose purpose is to represent the meaning of a word or an idea (concrete or abstract). This photographic treatment allows me to link photography more easily to international literature.
