Over time, she has transposed her drawings into space thanks to paper cut-outs, and developed a photographic practice in the studio, centered on the play on light and shade. She has received an allowance from the DRAC for photography and has participated in numerous exhibitions.
For a long time, artists have conceived of the line as a passion, forging it according to their mood or temperament, with the sole purpose of constructing in a few lines a meaningful example, a perspective, a point of view, a balance, similar to a fragment torn from reality. Agnès Audras could have followed this goal if her intention had not been precisely to take the line away from the plane, thus blurring the usual dimension of graphics. By putting her subjects in a state of weightlessness, in an unstable floating, she adds shadows to them and gives back a mobility to the glance. A simple device is sometimes enough to blur our conception of representation, this is the lesson to be learned from Agnès Audras' work.
