Original painting, unique piece by Sophie Lormeau In the series "Portrait lyrique", here is the imaginary portrait with flies, of a dreamer wearing a thousand eyes. Evanescent young woman with sleepy eyes, torn between dream and melancholy. The fly, usually represented by a small round spot to represent the small piece of black taffeta that women used to put on their skin to bring out its whiteness, I have chosen, here, to blur the tracks. To confuse the spectator by sticking in relief two old reproductions of these annoying, even repulsive insects. These intriguing winged flies are at the heart of J.P. Sartre's theatrical "huis clos" of the same title, where they symbolize remorse and personify tyranny. Mixed technique (acrylic paint, pencil, collage and pastel) on magazine paper, with deliberately torn edges, highlighted in a white wooden display case frame. Painting signed lower right. Certificate of authenticity signed on the back.
