« Traits multiples 1 », Traits series, Japanese ink on Japanese paper, 40 x 40 cm - Louise Cara, 2014
Black frame and glass
The uniqueness of Louise Cara’s technique lies in her choice of materials and tools. It is expressed by the exclusive use of an intense deep black Japanese ink and a unique pigment, slate, fixed by a natural binder. The graphism of her painting is made of signs and tracings mainly drawn by a spatula and calligraphy brushes. Louise Cara seeks to strike a balance in oppositions: black/white, full/empty, flexible/hard, horizontal/vertical, as if to graphically install a harmony of contrasts.
