Artwork description:

portrait of a Chinese girl, approached in an organic, gestural, abstract style

What is the meaning of L'une ?

It is a double meaning word. I found it appropriate for this series; in French it means "the one" (she), and "Lune" - moon.

It's a moody portraits series, where I want to express the fragility and beauty of the woman features, by trying to capture a moment, an impression. They seem reflexive, or day dreaming, or maybe slipping into a melancholic, undefined mood.


- two coats of satin varnish
- textural oil paint
- canvas, gallery-wrapped frame.
- it is ready to hang or you can frame it, as you wish.

Framing options can be discussed, please message me for more details before making the order (I can propose you various framing ideas/ mock-ups, and you chose, the model preferred). I can ship it framed with a modern floating frame, for approx. 50 Euro more (it includes the shipping cost difference).
