Shadow of the Mona Lisa is the title of a small drawing. It seems bold and perhaps even usurpatory. Well, in art everything is possible, everything is allowed. In theory, of course. Bold actions make sense when there is some logic to them. The black silhouette, which does not give away details but only signals the presence of a woman, contains an understatement, a mystery. This woman is hiding something from us, but at the same time, she wants us to look at her. Isn’t it exactly the same as the Mona Lisa? I ask this question bearing in mind all the differences between a painting and a drawing. There is an enormous distance, I might even say an abyss, between Leonardo da Vinci’s painting and my drawing. In addition, the author of the Mona Lisa painting was a man and I am a woman. But it seems to me that we would like to talk about the same thing through our work. About the fact that a woman is unknowable, mysterious, and at the same time attractive. So much I would like to include in this simplistic shape! I rely on its strength so that the drawing can explain the title of this Mona Lisa picture.
