Ball pen on paper

8.3 x 11.7 in

Hélène Poignon was born in 1984. Graduated from The School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, she lives and works in Toulouse.

Hélène paints the flesh, with neither concession nor artifice, violently real with a perfect mastering.

The features are coarsed and sharped, intimacy is shown without shame.
