La jeune fille au turban – Tribute to Vermeer (série de 5) 80*120
The notoriety of the portrait painted in the 17th century by Johannes Vermeer, “The young woman with the pearl” is no longer to be done. The artist of this version, a great admirer of the old flamish painter, wished to pay tribute to him by drawing a model inspired from his work while appending to it the cultural attributes of a young Namibian woman of the Herero ethnies. The artist operates a process of building a bridge between cultures, techniques, playing on similarities and drawing on contrast, both visual and cultural.
