Auris interna

Pencil on paper - 50 x 65 cm each - 2014-2015

Auris interna, Latin translation of inner ear is the organ of the human body essential for balance. Two abstract volumetric forms respond to each other and seem to float on the surface of the paper. Their complex shape and their grisaille color may remind us of certain engravings from the Victorian era. Hypertrophied, these two elements, invisible to the naked eye, obturated by the auditory canal, take on all other meanings until they reach the limits of modeling drawing.
