A ghostlike figure
A ghostlike figure with a wide-open mouth, deep eye sockets, and arms flung upward in dismay or fright gazes unexpectedly at the viewer. The figure is shrouded in a cloak of white fabric suggesting both presence and absence. This visual motif, originally from his work ‹‹Untitled, 2015›› painted in oil on canvas in the size of 241.3 × 165.7 cm, derives from the image of an old marionette that the artist transposed into a painting.
The photogravure was produced in 2019 in close collaboration with the artist on the occasion of his exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler and is available in an edition of 100 copies.
