Set Ablaze | 2011



As in another work (in which I drew little houses inspired by the artwork of children and folk art), this was the result of my interest in the use of different densities of graphite. In this case I set fire to the houses, in remembrance of Jean Cocteau’s response to a question about what he would take with him if his house were ablaze: the fire.

  • graphite, colored pencils, Moleskine accordion album
  • variable dimensions
