Thierry Geoffroy / COLONEL
poses a direct question in one of his works "How to provoke the moment of clarity?" which is rather precisely reflecting the artist's attempt to stimulate awareness through art. As always, his work focuses on training of the awareness
, making people question the world in which they live and by that, hopefully, avoiding the state of apathy. He also presents cartons with simple drawings combined with textual expressions, which often include Jeu-de mot, give an impression about the creative process, thought, terminology or ideas on subject in question. For example he playes with the word clarity
, opposing it to the word realite, by constructing a new word in French "clarealité" (clareality).The cartons are also "colored" with personal feelings, giving us small openings to artist's universe.
