Oil paints on canvas
In "Portrait d’une jeune musicienne jouant de la guitare", a character stands out against a dark, neutral backdrop. Painted in strong, solid colours, the musician looks intensely focused on her instrument, herself an artist absorbed in her work. Her face emerges brightly from cast shadows. Both steadily here and absent to the world, caught in action or in a moment of reflection, she invites contemplation and daydreaming. With a limited palette and bold contrasts, playing with the blurriness of shapes and the precision of expression, Sophia Fassi paradoxically displays a soft, empathetic outlook that creates a sense of intimacy.
