La BELLE ET LA BÊTE
Wite anb black ink / gouache on paper
60 × 30 cm
The work, inspired by Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast, seeks to evoke a sense of magic and enchantment. While the film refers to Gustave Doré and Johannes Vermeer, the artist has found inspiration in a random selection of images from a book on gardens, reminding us that nature, in which the female figures wander, is the real protagonist. The black and white ink work mixes the images in a positive and negative geometry.
