About the work :

Incantation I is a drawing made with black chalk by French contemporary artist Guy Oberson. 

This drawing is part of the ‘Density of an absence’ series, inspired by Derborence, a novel by Swiss author Charles Ferdinand Ramuz. The book tells the story of a survival: that of Antoine, a young man trapped in a mountain landslide, who emerged alive 7 weeks later. It addresses the theme of missing someone and can clarify the title of this drawing: incantations are chants intended to call back the spirit of the dead. A heavy atmosphere charges the drawing and is reminiscent of still life representations.

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 sold framed in a white floating box with anti-reflective glass, museum quality.
