The Three Graces

In her large drawing “The Three Graces”, Agnes Poitevin-Navarre bridges mythologies, stories and archetypes of the old world and the new by composing distinctive yet inter-related cartouches based on a photographic collage. She oscillates between depth of fields both vertically and horizontally. The inverse markmaking in the foreground creates and blocks the negative space within a golden ratio of the drawing. In the middleground, a seascape metamorphoses into a mountain-scape before a sea of youthful faces from the American Dream is sketched and fixed in time in the background.
