The beautiful and timeless images of Ayline Olukman hold of a mixed technique where photography, painting and screenprinting generate eminently poetic compositions, even totally unreal.
The photography becomes a medium following the example of a representational element on which the sets of glacis, the paint are going to develop and to reveal a new image by opening the look to another dimension.
Between nostalgia, regret of the last days, fruits of the lost paradises grant us fragments of eternity.
Fruits of the desire, palm trees of the edenic islands, the sea in which we get lost body and soul, testify of a somewhere else idyllic, a dreamed exoticism which makes our imagination travel.
But at the same time, we notice very fast that fruits in the tasty colors carry in them the thankless signs of our finiteness.
A pineapple put down on a tissue in the faded tones tells us this inexorable leak of time. The worm is inevitably held in the fruit which, sometimes, rots where dries out in " a still life " herald of this loss which corrupts any sense of the happiness at the very moment when we believe to hold it and where we celebrate it
Because nothing is ever eternal, seems to tell us Ayline Olukman who exempts us through its works these bright "day vestiges" which, in their esthetic beauty, their timeless poetry, did not stop re-enchanting a world which is made and comes crumples in the will of our life.
