'Vitis vinifera, mon amour' 2010

This collection of handmade drawings are made with Indian ink, water based ink, acrylic ink and watercolour. This series is an observation and reflection on the natural cycle of the vines.

The different seasons of the vine are shown. The vine and the man live a metamorphosis together as each picture expresses the symbiosis between the vine and the human being. One can compare the relationship between the vine and the man to a passionate love story.

The vine is embodied and suggests the presence of a feminine character. Inspite of the rustic and rough features of a vine the drawings reveal strongly its feminine side throughout its development until the final maturity.
