Is This Desire

The fluid figure's steady gaze draws the viewer into the painting's world, depicted in exquisite gray tones. The scene takes place in a secluded woodland spot where a caressing appendage on the left border seems to come from the surrounding plants themselves. The artist's unique style draws from the vocabulary of comics to explore the agency of exquisitely rendered female figures.
