This is not an armchair. This is Fantômette's portrait.
Fantômette is a french novel hero for children.
She's a teen-age crime fighter dressed in yellow and dark.
In the background : collage from my Fantômette's books.
This painting is part of a series : "Ceci est un portrait ."
The initial idea was to paint the absence. When there is not more than a lack and an empty armchair.
Then the idea became more playful : paint a portrait under the shape of an armchair.
Collage, acrylic and oil on canvas.
