Lot Essay

«Le dessin permet d’éprouver les idées; c’est une version élaborée de la pensée. Cela ne vient pas instantanément comme une photographie. La façon incertaine et imprécise dont s’élabore un dessin est parfois un modèle pour construire du sens.»

«Drawing allows you to experience ideas: it’s an elaborate version of thought. It doesn’t come instantaneously like a photograph. The uncertain and imprecise way in which a drawing is crafted is sometimes a model for the construction of meaning.»
