Thus, the first part, entitled Toise, shows a huge attraction for the uniform plateau picard Thierry Girard treated as its landscape and Atlantic Ocean.
The second series, Noise, is primarily related to the work of Nerval, poet of Valois, but also evokes La Belle noiseuse Balzac, and the question of representation. Hence the idea to work on the ambiguity of the representation of the body in painting or statuary religious and suggest, through a few portraits of young girls and atmospheres of wood or of nature, a pictorial and literary universe a romance a little dark and melancholic … nervalien somehow.
The third part, Poise, this urban landscapes photographed in the room 4 x 5. Not interested or monuments, or mansions, and picturesque farms, but to places of brick and gray refer to the industrial and working history of the Oise and in an era symbolized by the work of ‘Henri Barbusse, another writer isarien.

A winter oise is the result of an artist residency initiated by the General Council of the Oise, which ran from October 2007 to March 2008.
