Patrick Neu is a part of this constellation of artists who consider that the fundamental know how should lead to the achievement of a work. His artistic process is rooted in Art History as well as in the History of science and technology. His knowledge is lined by a deep understanding of the artistic gestures. His work interacts well with both his contemporaries and with the goldsmiths of Antiquity. Patrick Neu changes the traditional techniques and materials in order to create something new. In parallel of his experiments with materials, he devotes himself since the beginning of the 1990’s to the watercolour on paper. Every Spring, during two weeks, he captures the flowering of the Iris.
