Acrylic paint and concrete on canvas
206 x 156 cm
French-Moroccan artist Latifa Echakhch is using diverse techniques in her works that invite the viewer to reflect on the rigidity and contradictions of society. By decontextualizing materials and objects loaded with symbolic meaning she encourages an active reading and combines politics and poetry, thus leaving the interpretation open to individual projections and interpretation.
For this work the artist used a particular technique – after covering the canvas with a layer of concrete, she paints on it and ultimately removes parts of the surface by hand, only leaving a part of the landscape is to actually be seen.
