Although coral reefs occupy only 1% of the planet's surface, they are the most diverse ecosystems, harbouring 25% of marine life. The equivalent of a tropical forest on land! Beyond their beauty, therefore, they are essential and indispensable to the good balance of marine flora and fauna. Their delicate shape and bright colours are a great source of inspiration for Miguel Chevalier. Using the technique of laser-cut paper, he manages to transcribe the delicacy of corals digitally with finesse. His graphic corals are assembled to give life to the fluorescent colours and shapes that seem to repeat themselves endlessly. A tribute to Matisse's paper cut-outs, these collages also evoke human neurons, blood vessels, algae trees and, above all, the precious coral massifs. An exhibition presented in parallel with the artistic intervention Fractals Coraux 1 on the Saint-Tropez Lighthouse on the occasion of the fourth edition of Saint-Tropez Couleur Bleu, from 12 June to 4 November 2021.
