Les papiers déchirés / Torn papers
1988 - 1992

Major y exprime sa fascination pour la nature. Les papiers déchirés traduisent l’impressionnante force de vie des végétaux, de leur naissance au printemps jusqu’à leur décomposition – décomposition qui n’est finalement qu’une étape avant le nouveau réveil. On y découvre parfois aussi un monde aérien comme des envolées d’insectes ou d’oiseaux.

Major expresses his fascination with nature. The torn papers translate the impressive life force of plants, from their birth in spring until their decomposition – decomposition which is ultimately only a stage before a new awakening. We sometimes also discover an aerial world with flying insects and birds.
