Description

Nathalie Pirotte is specialised in portraits of women, whose eyes are intentionally covered with paint. Nathalie Pirotte transforms women into anonymous subjects by literally erasing their face with paint.The absence of the face/eyes induces the spectator to a more pictorial reading, going from the face to the context. It increases the focus on the intimate, secret side of the subject. It is not only a research on identity but on the medium of painting in the era of Photoshop.
