Artist's description:

*2016 Traditional technique on calf skin 26 cm x 60cm


Animal skin has long been used for fabricating daily necessities. However, our knowledge about using it as a paintings material is limited in some traditional stories and ancient folk art.

Animal skin is an organic material. Its characteristics make it quite hard for artists to create smooth silhouettes. Maxence uses special artistic techniques that enable the skin to transform into a perfect material for painting, presenting almost an illusion of photographs and a distinct texture. The fact that every piece of skin is unique makes the creation process much more difficult than creating paintings with normal materials. However, it offers originality, rareness and impossibility of copying.

He inherits this traditional family technique from his father, MA Fuliang, an artist who has been living in Paris for about 30 years.
