On a gray background, a face full of folds, cheeks hollowed, black hair. The eyes are closed, the expression is severe. Can work in Dyptic with "Masque au chapeau bleu" (Blue Hat Mask).
Ancient masks (2003-2005): these paintings date from the years 2003 to 2005. They correspond to the plastic research which was mine at the time, more expressionist than the later works. Long stayed in my studio and very little exposed, I now wish to present as one of the origins of my current work.
