About the work :

Black (Personal Mountains) is a landscape drawing made with black chalk by French contemporary artist Guy Oberson.  

This black chalk drawing is on the border between abstraction and figuration. The title, while qualifying the theme, also tends to affirm ambivalence, it invites the spectator to guess at a mountain, while warning of the large amount of artistic imagination found in its representation. The viewer can therefore see into the artist’s mind, his memories and imagination, all covered with a fine dark veil made visible by vertical lines obscuring the image and the atmosphere.

From the start, black chalk has always characterized Guy Oberson's work. It is a drawing tool, similar to charcoal, but the blacks are even more matt and deep, and it requires impeccable control as it is irreversible. These landscapes or portraits drawings are always figurative. The artist works using a model or frequently from a photograph, which can be of a model, that of a known photographer or even an image borrowed from the media.

Guy Oberson shades the black chalk with a multitude of vertical streaks which alters the perception of the subject, making the interpretation of the artwork far less immediate. The subject is thus taken apart, loosing body, but gains in expressive intensity. The artist draws through the accumulated lines; so that the subjects emerge when they are viewed at a distance but when approached, they start to dissipate.

This artwork is a diptych composed by two pannels each measuring 165 cm x 138 cm.
