The artist represented herself in profile, bare-chested. With her head turned towards us, she plunges her intense gaze into ours.

The symbols of the snake, the mygal and the scorpion, which wander freely on the young woman’s body, and which willingly inspire fear and disgust, are totally opposed to the enchantment of magnificent red flowers, entangled on a blue sky background, which cover the canvas.

The red flowers are wide open, the nudity exposed, the penetrating gaze: the work exudes a strong erotic tension. Here we have represented the tempting and deadly dangerous woman, the antagonism, the duality of Eros and Thanatos.

This "magical realism" inspires him to create figurative, colourful and luminous canvases in which characters are represented in a fantasized nature, surrounded by a whole friendly or threatening bestiary. The painter often places the human silhouette she masters best, her image, in order to play with our perceptions and develop a lush pictorial language.
