Memento Mori


Actually at Memento Mori (Los Angeles)
Thank you very much to Deirdre and Brad! http://www.mementomori-la.com/

(“BEYOND
excited to share the eerily macabre works of French painter Christophe
Prades with all of you! Each of these incredible one of a kind pieces
were hand painted with resins, pigments and ink on antique mirrors and
finished with antique frames, giving them a truly haunting transparent
effect. See our Instagram Stories this afternoon for a direct link to
these macabre treasures!⁠ ⁠

Christophe Prades started working as
an abstract painter at the age of 20. Over time, female figures started
to emerge from the magma of color and materials and then took a central
role in his work, becoming a kind of series of modern icons. His work
questions the representation of the sacred in today’s reign of
technology and consumerism. His canvas - the mirror, is thus a magic
object that can retain traces of the souls that it has reflected –
creating an object which is the sum of the imperfect reflections of
these moments.⁠
