Description

Although Nathalie Pirotte is specialized in women portraits, she also depicts men whose eyes are intentionally covered with paint. The artist uses high contrast to distance the basic figurative image of a man, painted in the background, by the presence of sensual pictorial matter, pink impasto applied by the painter. Nathalie Pirotte transforms women and men into anonymous subjects by literally erasing their face with paint. It is not only a research on identity but on the medium of painting in the era of Photoshop.
