The boys in my room
Drawings in acrylic painting
2007 – 2009
The representation of the face is, for Franklin, a meticulous habit, almost an obsession. The repetition of the same action -seeing and drawing a face-, using different graphic techniques, tries to define the regarded subject from the way he presents himself. The boys in my room, is a series of drawings, sourced from autoportraits from chat rooms pictures. People I talked to but I’ve never met in the material world, boys who spent a while in my room even if they never come into my place.
