Danse Macabre

While being in France, I was lucky to see the show Derniere Danse in Strasbourg. it was so fantastic to see how the theme of the macabre and death was exploited since Hans Holbein to John Hartford. This exhibition stuck in my mind so why not trying to do my Danse Macabre?

Here are photos of the process of the fist collage on the theme and I hope I will work and dig deeper into this theme.

Cutting the first skeleton

After cutting skeletons in pieces so i can articulate and make them dance

All the pieces put aside the time I work on the background

Working on details


Working on the background. First time I use a gold in my work

And the pieces glued. Adding some ink and gold for detailing.
