For the edition »Zonder Titel, 2001—2002« on the occasion of her exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz, Berlinde De Bruyckere has returned to a motif that has permeated her graphic work since 2001. Against a parchment colored background a profile emerges, a tender only vaguely visible half figure portrait. Hair falling across the head and upper body, indicated in black strokes of the pencil, conceals the face, merely hinting at its eyes and contours. The portrait’s aloofness is countered by the coloring and graphic delicacy of the drawing, achieving a mysteriously graceful balance.
