Artist Crush: Valerie Belmokhtar

Tuesday, November 23, 2010 · 2 Comments

Parisian artist, Valerie Belmokhtar reached out to share her work, and I am totally enamored with her exquisite drawings and etchings. The obsessive repetitions and fading are wonderful foils for the psychological fragility of the artist’s subjects, who include Psyche, the Greek goddess of the soul. These women appear to be having out-of-body experiences, less rooted in reality than they are floating through a sea of emotion.

    These are stunning! I am a big fan of what can be done with etchings: the delicacy, the lightness of touch…

    I totally agree! I know it’s a difficult medium to work with but the effects are really special.
