How does one draw a black object ? What shape, what volume, what texture to give it, to capture the light while obtaining different nuances?
My research in black foundry led me to reinterpret the mirror for Mobilab Gallery as part of the Face / Surface exhibition.
“Kuro,” which means black in Japanese, is a black mirror of different textures, rough or polished, which play with the absorption and reflection of light.
The volume of this piece offers two sides of meditative space: the eye passes from image to texture, from reflection to object.
