Dominique Figarella

Dominique Figarella on the opening of his exhibition at La Station.
My use of colour in this drawing has certainly been inspired by the colour of Dominique's shirt, but also by his stunning paintings (which deal with the relation between painting, photography, and reality: Paintings embedding photographies of the process of their making, photographies that mimetically become part of the painting...)
12 x 15 cm

I just love the stroke for the shirt! The color, too!

Thank you Suzanne!

I agree with Suzanne--the violet is beautiful, and I love how the other swatch of color echoes it in shape and as a muted color variation.
I'll have to try to apply what you've done here to one of my own--I like the minimalist drawing with the even more minimalist application of color.
