Drawing: Ink on Paper.
I start my works instinctively, without a precise idea. Then, when I see a shape in it, a figure, an expression I follow and develop it. Or, I remain in an abstract language. Sometimes I sketch first an idea. Sometimes, while drawing, I orient the paper in different ways several times: that's why you can orient some of my works as you like.
This time I chose a primitive subject, an ancestor mask from New Guinea.
I use different kinds of china ink: Rohrer & Klingner for black (matt) and Sennelier for colors (half-matte). I mix them in order to obtain matt and half-matte effects, as I try to show in one detailed picture, taken with the needed slant to make the half-matte effect observable. Of course, you can see these effects in the original only, not in the printed version.
