Annabelle Guetatra has magical fingers. With a few pencil strokes, a few touches of color, the young woman, recently graduated from La Cambre, who have received three prices in a row - price of the Vocation, price Rousseau at Ixelles and the price of the French Community, category painting and drawing, creates a world in itself. Her mysterious drawings put on a performance bodies with a fantastic sense of movement, inviting us to join the dance (of which) she is the only one who knows the steps. At the first sight, the characters come to life. The always gripping story surprises us, immersing ourselves into a tale with an unpredictable end. Annabelle excels in the art of sketching. Her strokes, we imagine sliding on the rustling paper, are tinged with a restraint spontaneity that contradicts the result of the work. If the drawing technique, incredibly mastered, reveals a use of the space giving as much as sense to empty at full, a slippery feeling persists of the order of pulsion. In small formats, the story focuses, get denser, in larges, game of transparence intensifies the hypnotic feeling of unreality and fuzzy.
Camille Perotti, 2011
