Gérard Duchêne worked on a conceptual destruction of language and words, while staying in a practical claimed and aesthetics of painting. Much of his work involves writing a diary that he generally called "Journal d’il." He writes with the pen, soaked in acid on polystyrene plates. Words deform immediately by the action of the acid biting and hollow polystyrene. The complete page (A4 usual) becomes a template it uses like a writer: he ink then press a cloth or a sheet of paper. The painter practice is always present by the choice of colors and materials as well as inking actions (brushing, coating, pressing etc.).

The poster is a long series of sentences destroyed but the words remain present graphically. In the middle, a small light gray square.
