Ingrid Betancourt


In the studio

Today I almost finished the portrait of Ingrid Betancourt I am working on. Despite the fact that she knew she was at the wrong place at the wrong time when she was abducted by the FARC, I still feel close to her and I would like, in my way, to express my hope that she will be free soon and that she will be able to see her children after years of being separated from them.

In my painting I used extracts of the letter she wrote to her mother last November. I stamped it in the background, letter by letter.

j'adore la typographie et sa façon de la mêler à l'art ou à la decoration ...
