RMC’s pencil isn’t just for drawing, it’s also for writing. Simple, poetic texts, which say in words what her drawings say in images, realizing the symbiosis between these two modes of creation that one would think are different but which for her are inseparable. In addition to the Sculpted Papers and Poem Paintings which are presented elsewhere on this site, it offers us many Artist Books which are to be discovered here.
