We’re time travelers. From Chardin’s 18th-century ‘Nature morte’ to Computer-Generated Imagery (CGI) – Dynamic Still Life in our studio at Château Cramirat.
The world’s gone crazy, and all that’s left for us to do is just take a deep dive into these geniuses of the 18th century, to learn from them this art of how to immortalize an object, capture an atmosphere, freeze a fleeting moment that will never return, use technology to time-travel, stop for a second… from our studio in a 13th-century Château Cramirat, what we do is to go back to the future.
Jean Baptiste Siméon Chardin was one of the greatest masters of Still Life in art history, who would construct a simple world of truth, humility, and calm that played out in a few square inches on his canvas.
We choose Chardin to be our master. All we want to do is study his genius, and much like many artists have done, we try to manipulate the abstract elements of a painting to achieve harmony between form and content, subject and technique.
In today’s fast-paced world you can easily overlook Chardin’s subtle beauty and delicate balance. You have to slow yourself down to properly appreciate one of his paintings.
The abstract analysis of shape, color, tone, texture, and the overall unity found in Chardin’s compositions have greatly inspired our CGI imagery. 18th-century masterpieces by Chardin leap into the 21st-century in our 3D motion studio that operates from our ancient Templar chateau. We’re time travelers.
