Copro Gallery presents Miss Van's "Wild At Heart". This will be her first solo exhibition with Copro and one of Miss Van's largest exhibitions ever.
Discover Miss Van last artistic exploration “Wild At Heart” through drawings on paper and wood. A combination of animals, bestial elements and her famous beautiful and sensual girls. Mystery, seduction and delicacy...
"I have been mixing girls and animals for a while now, starting with simple masks and slowly melting the two natures together. For "Wild at Heart" the seduction acts on a different level and I choose to focus on details, hiding a lot and isolating selected sacred parts of the body (eyes, hair, mouth...). The forms and elements floating adds complexity, ambiguity and mystery. The masks allow me to show more feelings, other sides of a same character, hiding the face, partly or totally and embracing the animal strength, personality and attitude. I am illustrating the chemistry between the feminine delicacy and the bestial instinct, natural and raw and we all have this duality inside."
