In her Collapsed Drawing, Analia Saban uses a laser to cut out the works of the painters that she respects - Matisse, Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Giacometti or even the American minimalist artist Ellsworth Kelly in a serie that includes this Castor Bean Leaf. While carrying out an autopsy on them in a disciplined scientific manner, she uncovers their skeletons. The blackened residues left on the canvas after the operation under the picture frame glass appear like a negative of the original work.
