"By immersing myself in children’s stories as well as fables and legends, I created a series of drawings in which I set up female characters accompanied by animals, playing on a shift in the characteristics commonly attributed to animals.

In these drawings the wolves are not necessarily mean, nor are the little girls totally innocent.

These women, inspired by Renaissance madonnas, sculptures of Greek goddesses, or characters from art history, are accomplices of animals in unspoken stories, which each spectator can build according to his own sensitivity." - Marta Grassi

Technique: Black stone, gouache and dry pastels on Canson paper 160 g/m2.

The work will be sent well protected and rolled in a double rigid cardboard tube. Possibility to frame it with an additional cost (see framing examples on picture n°2).

Marta Grassi grew up in Uruguay surrounded by painters in a family and social environment where art and creativity play a central role. Interested very early in drawing and painting, she developed in intimacy a singular plastic universe made of disguised characters and magical animals, after studying textile design, the artist settled permanently in Paris where she attended the workshops of the city’s Fine Arts. There, she works long hours on the drawing of the living model and thanks to this exercise she plunges back into the pleasures of her childhood: "Fables", "Série Noire" or "Strabismes" contain the artist’s plural worlds... the line of the drawing, the motifs, the matter, the light and the colour combine, to find the perfect equation of a work that the artist wishes above all "open and poetic".
