While some use all kinds of materials to create their work, the Australian artist CJ Hendry is more austere: only requires a black pen and long sheets of white paper to capture with photographic accuracy, objects that obsess her: from clothing from famous designers to weapons and bones. The precision and coordination between her gaze and touch are spectacular, enviable by any photographer. The patience she needs for each one of her paintings is eternal. Finally, the technique to mimic the attraction and repulsion between light and shadow frees her creations on paper: abandon their organic prison, breaking the barrier of dimensionality to land in the hands of the viewer.
