Cranium In White Room, 1984. Oil on canvas. 275 x 200 cm.
Ransve loves to construct an origin for his gaze and his disquiet, in their multiple manifestations. Tenaciously, he insists on looking to the visible for what the visible continues to conceal and to render imperceptible. He persists obsessively in subtracting something to the immense an open blackness surrounding and corroding things. His is a nocturnal and lunar space with no perimeter; the body’s nefarious and abstract loss of outline where the figure is now eclipsed forever.
