Oil Paint on Rice Paper - Monotypes (2015-2016)
Size 97 cm X 66 cm
Through the yearsI found that the portraits became an ex- tension of my autodidactic filmmaking. I depict those in my close circle, artists and friends with whom I find pleasure and intimicay in making monotypes. This technique is im- mediate, filled with element of mistakes, surprises, and are “negatives” of what I see and paint, just like celluloid film. These works are coming from the same place as the emo- tional relationship I have with the subjects. They are done in 15 to 20 minutes from life, the friend in front of me, after a nice tea and conversation. I ask each to bring an object that is part of their life and practice.
