Sophie Leblanc turned to art full time when she lost affection for her first career as an architect. The French illustrator and painter now explores the “tension between the softness and gravity which characterizes childhood.”
Many of her oil on canvas works are large scale close-ups of evocative faces, or scenes that edge into surrealism.
This painting is a study for a larger canvas, Hulk, for a series on the theme of carnivals. Below, Autoportrait aux coussins (self-portrait with pillows, 76.8 W x 51.2 H x 0.8 in)
