REFLECTION 2021 is a new video piece released as part of MINDFULNESS, a collection of two artworks by Grégoire A. Meyer.
Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.
Grégoire A. Meyer creates digital illustrations and videos that evoke thought-provoking reactions. His art examines the body in its extraordinary simplicity as a biological, digital, and aesthetic organism. He strives to capture the essence of fleeting moments, like a splash of water or a disintegrating face, and freeze them in time in objects that appear almost tangible to create a complex relationship between fact and fiction.Meyer's artworks explore the essential elements of the human form, creating ethereal compositions using new media paired with digital technologies.
By applying a convincing array of textures, the artist digitally merges together contemplative pieces,which often evoke feelings of isolation or loneliness trapped momentarily. A face is clearly visible in a splash of water caught midair. Human forms are developed from a rich palette of metallic textures,revealing visual complexity on the surface, which mirrors a matching emotional complexity within.
