Black & White (2009-2010)
« You have to respect black; it is not a pleasant color and it creates none sensuality ; it is the translator of mind».
Odilon Redon, 1913
At the very beginning of my drawing practise in 2005, I used immedialetly the bic pen. I do appreciate this medium because it slides on the paper very easily and offers a huge expressive freedom. Its texture and its possiblities of different light spectrum are quite similar to etching. In 2009 I created my first personal works on paper but kept in mind the Old Masters etchnig master pieces – Dürer, Schongauer, Gustave Doré, Bresdin, Kubin.
Every drawing of the Balck & White series deals about the abyss of the human soul : passions, contradictions, emotions, tensions.
I experimented mixed techniques by using black bic pen, India ink and gouaches.
