Dames de Jeux is a series of iconography that pictures the timeless mystery of playing cards in a playful esthetic.
Synthetizing digital photography with symbolism, the DAMES (queens), in a deck of cards are represented in an ironic and whimsical manner.
The mirrored faces here, play with our perception of a reality – the original
photograph that is deconstructed and rearranged - and subliminally connect us to the archetypal symbolism of magic and the mystic of reading into the future.
Each tableau is a double layering game, based on a single image of shapes and colours, with subconscious associations and a visual play of reflection and refraction.
