“Moved by the magnificent Rodin à Québec exhibition (1998) at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, I returned to the studio and did a series of drawings in tribute to Rodin, based on sculptures and photographs of him and his studio in the exhibition catalogue. These drawings of ecoline and ink were created on paper handmade by me. The pulp is made from sugarcane and corrugated cardboard. It is a very delicate paper, in opposition to Rodin’s massive sculptures. Atelier de Rodin contains Rodin’s sculpture Les trois sirènes.”
