Black is elegance, a color that does not confess its name, a nothing that dresses, but a whole that remains timeless, a tint of origin.

A non-colour, the addition of other colours, which reveals light, identifies shapes and contrasts colours. Many artists have tried the exercise of black, some because they found purity and simplicity in it, others because it allowed them to get to the point, and to quote Matisse: black is a color in itself, which sums up and consumes all the others.
