History of the work :
Seen in the film Dr. Dolittle with Eddie Murphy in 2001, this adorable mammal registered in a corner of my head.
At that time I was not a painter at all, but like a black box, we can keep in memory things, people, phenomena that mark you for life.
Some important symbols in the painting:
- An A.K. headlamp, which reminds us of the coalfield
- The lower part of the animal in delta form, reminiscent of the wings of the CONCORDE and its Snecma Olympus engines
- The radiator grill in the centre of the BUGGATI car manufacturer
All this underlines the evolution, the technological beauty of the industry culminating in an exceptional know-how in all sectors.
This 40 x 40 cm image, straight from the bowels of the earth, is a reference to the clip SONNE
(Sun in German) by the band RAMMSTEIN with its revisited version of Snow White and the 7 dwarfs.
Finally, the story of this painting is a tribute to my illustrious grandfather Etienne KUBASIK (1910 – 1999), a miner who was sent to the depths of the earth at the age of 14 and then, cultivating his thirst for learning and passing on his knowledge, became a recognised and respected teacher of aeronautical electricity at the AIR FRANCE school in VILGÉNIS.
