The hands of Caravaggio

This series of ink drawings and washes on paper was inspired by a particular aspect of the paintings of Caravaggio: hands. They are a pretext to explore how the interplay of lines is creating form and defining space. In each drawing, the emerging hands animate the imagination to complete the image while allowing the space to appear. This ambiguity heightens our awareness bringing those drawings to life.
