Young, French artist Charlotte Caron works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, engraving and photography. Her series of painted portraits is particularly captivating. This unique execution involves painting animal faces over photographed human forms, and serves as commentary about the complexity of human nature, and being part civilized and part wild. Caron cites the theories by Antoine Spire, and also describes this hybrid approach in her own words: “We are both tempted by the humanization of animals, which often reveals our fantasy projections and the bestial men, another way for us to freeze the other in a animality.” “This series of paintings, photographs, tries to give an answer to a form of duality – that assumes an animal part. By the medium of painting in addition, flow, mask, portrait to ultimately create an osmosis between the two mediums, so between the animal and the portrait.”
