About the artwork

Laurent Dequick once again moves away from the traditional representation that we have of landscapes around us in order to present a highly poetic vision. As an eye-witness of the contemporary city, he knows its slightest fluctuations and it is on his escapades around the world that he captures many of the monuments, settings, and sites that have been the undisputed witnesses of history and of the radiating influence of the countries he traverses. He has always been passionate about combining techniques and his photography is the fruit of an inseparable encounter between photography and painting. This image comes from a series of photographs dedicated to the city of Hong Kong, one of the most densely populated cities in the world with around 7 million people living within 1 100 square kilometres. An abstract image, it is experienced by the viewer as a graphic composition in which the lines, colours, and geometric shapes intersect to form an arrangement oscillating between optical pleasure and visual reality.
