Lot 202 - Lucile Haefflinger - Do I Want to Read Before Sleeping
Oil and Watercolour on Paper
A6 (15 x 10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on verso
I am drawn to a gentle cruelty. Intimacy and violence. It seems inescapable that these terms cannot be separated and are in constant balance. Often I draw by scratching and slicing into patches of pigment and glue, or scraping an idea into fresh oil paint. The soft, bodily quality of a brush in one hand, a ragged blade in the other. These images feel like they are excavated and found, as much as they are created.
I did my bachelor's at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam, in the TXT (text and textile) department. Between 2019-2021 I studied on the postgraduate programme at the Royal Drawing School, which focuses on using observational drawing as a grounding for one’s studio practice.
