Artist's description:

In this artwork, I tried to recreate the impression of a close-up portrait in charcoal, using traditional etching techniques. When doing life drawing, I really enjoy being very close to the model and recreating the volume using light and shade. This work took me a long time to produce. I tried various techniques to have these "drawn-on" effect. It is paired with another etching called "Quelqu'un m'a dit". ("someone told me"). These two works explore the idea of intimacy. Before confiding in her secret, the young woman tries to recollect her thoughts, and wonders whether the friend she is going to talk to can be trusted.

Materials used:

ink on paper (using a traditionally etched zinc plate)

In Deep Thought (2013)
