In developing a set of exchange between abstract painting, eroticism and current communication technologies, Véronique Savard proposes with Priorie online to question, by the displacement of writing (SMS, texto, acronyms), the mechanisms of contemporary individualizations inserted into daily life. The writing she refers to in her large format paintings seeks to reflect a still more marked exposure of the private sphere and even more its democratization in the sphere of the public. She uses the impersonal aspect of conversations via the Internet as well as the abrupt exchange of sexual solitudes that are played out and introduced through the subsequent tensions that occur by moving the text to the painting. Repetition, reduction of plastic language, referring to Cybersex as pictorial pattern and pixellation are the source of what the artist calls her screen paintings.
