Mon bon ange, 2022

In several non text-based works, like Mon bon ange, I explore ways of revealing and hiding the image through combinations of mark-making, with tiny pencil marks, or puncturing, in themes related to motifs of tapestries and cushions, or 18th century gravures for book illustrations. In this case, my investigation is about the perception of drawing through a textured surface rather than the actual representation.
