Sebastien Preschoux, born in 1974 in Paris is deeply touched by the optical art, but also by the values of the teaching of the Bauhaus lauding an instruction centred on the fundamental value of the manual labor.
Sébastien created indefatigably more and more complex drawings being able to compete with what a machine could produce in a few moments.
By this approach he knew how to create a visual confusion at the spectator who can bring this last one to wonder about the origin (human or mechanical) of his works. But only while approaching the spectator will have been able to identify the stigmas of the passage of the human hand, the attitude which Sébastien names the reward of the curious.
His work does not limit itself to a production in 2 dimensions, but finds a correspondence in 3 dimensions by means of thread installations, often realized in natural environment, so offering him a perfect freedom both in term of size and variety. For it he works in association with the photographer Ludovic LE COUSTER, who works with argentic cameras.
