from Thursday, February 27, 2020 to Saturday, June 20, 2020
Galerie XII Paris

enhance her prints, in a very subtle way. Thus reinterpreted in photopastels, as she calls them, her images go beyond reality. The artist proposes a personal and revisited reading, giving her own definition of theatre. Because the
