Film drawings

/ Film drawings

All of these drawings are appropriations of film stills. By taking the images out of their moving, cinematic context, they are no longer defined by the events that happen before and after the moment they represent. Thus, they open up to more than one reading of what happens in them. In the works, I explore subtleties in the body language and gazes of the characters in order to deduce what can still be interpreted about the situations as frozen moments in time. Besides the interaction between the male and female characters in the drawings, the space around them, or the mise-en-scéne, is of great importance to suggesting a certain atmosphere or narrative.
