Using 'pareidolia' as a drawing technique...

At the beginning, lines drawn at random in all directions jostle for space on my canvas. The game, very simple in its principles, consists in extracting from the chaos of intersecting lines some characters as expressive as possible. It is a bit like imagining crazy monsters in the clouds (‘pareidolia’) or inkblots (‘Rorschach test’). It is also like a mathematical equation to solve, except that variables and unknowns are many, solutions numerous and determined by the sensibility of whoever defines them, and a graphical solution is only the best until we find one that exceeds its expressiveness.

The game is not to draw a gorilla or bird, but a creature resembling a gorilla or a bird may appear here and there. However, no animal has served as a model, the creature will just have 'the look of a gorilla' or wings, but it will be neither gorilla nor bird. The features of the characters are retained only for their expressive power, without giving oneself any existing model to copy.
