Catalogue Note

"The Arte Povera artist (and wife of Mario Merz) shows a small suite of new work, concentrating on pencil-and-gold-leaf drawings on wood panels...The recurrent motif is a wide-eyed, full-lipped, functionally noseless female entity, part Byzantine icon, part alien, who hovers on the surface of the paper enmeshed in delicate nets of graphite lines."
