Quoting the famous work of M.C. Escher ("The drawing hands"), my work entitled "The drawing gloves" evokes, beyond the redundant sanitary imaginary of the Covid-19 year, the myth of the artist as a healer of language and implicitly of the world. If in Escher's work, the realism of the anatomical rendering of the self-drawing hands suggests an ontological connection between the act of production / artistic intention and reality itself, in my work the emphasis falls on the symbolic dimension of this circular relationship. It is an image-statement about art not only as a trigger of the real but also as a tool for (self) healing, for disinfecting the mentality, in terms of emotion, thought, conception. And especially in terms of expression, the "romantic" subjectivity of the self as the absolute center of artistic language, independent of the world, is eluded. The gloves, as a symbolic substitute for the protected action, no longer contain the hands of the one who "draws" the real. Inflated like bioluminescent balloons, the floating gloves do not draw each other anymore, the pencils of the magnificent engraver are replaced by the anonymous syringes of a metaphysical cure.
