  • "These paintings are painted in two steps. First I paint a portrait of a child—nice and tidy. Then I cover it with makeup as one of a child’s first primitive gesture related to painting. The makeup is about painting, but also about wearing a mask. Makeup, when it is not neatly applied can be disturbing, and evoke madness, or brutality."
    —Claire Tabouret
