Stage 7, Booth 301
Laurent Maes has developed a unique method to represent ships as graphic objects, to picture their pure lines, details and colour.
This point of view doesn’t usually offer this level of definition, the very high definition of pictures transforms the process of vision that becomes more analytic, abstract with a constant dialogue between details and general forms.
The distance with the subject creates the sensation that the “world below” is more quiet and peaceful while the level of definition creates a proximity.
Every ship has a unique design, built to very specific demands and the moving environment is also changing constantly.
The conjunction of those elements make each picture unique and results in SHIPSHAPE.
