The strength of empathy. There is a plant called “sensitive”, which reacts and closes its leaves as soon as you touch it. The model I collaborated with for this portrait was as responsive as this plant. She felt the people around her, more precisely their emotions, so keenly that sometimes she felt them before people named them. She was endowed with a very great empathy. It struck me, because we tend to erase our empathy today, when it is a real power to understand each other.
I painted her with my hands and my knives, between relief and flat areas of paint she plays with lights.
