Philippe Decrauzat's has been applying himself to exploring the field of abstraction with an aim to pushing back the boundaries and multiplying different perspectives. His practice outsmarts the traditional passivity of painting, with its spatial presence, its effects and its sources. The formal and chromatic vocabulary used by the artist in his paintings is exceptionally restrained. It usually consists of a multitude of lines, alternately straight, undulating, parallel, overlapping or even interwoven, which generate powerful moiré effects. The shaped cut of certain frames sometimes extends or reinforces the effect of twisting.

In parallel to his pictorial work, Philippe Decrauzat continues to add to his filmography, whose iconographic references underlie and enrich his entire output.
