ANA MIRALLES DJINN Dargaud Jade au bain maure, original illustration done in 2019, published in Ana by Daniel Maghen in 2022. Signed. Watercolor and India ink on paper 36.7 × 60.4 cm (14.45 × 23.78 in.) Slimness of the waist, power of the thighs, the stubborn look of a contemporary supermodel, false and true modesty inseparable. It is difficult to close one's eyes to the magnetic seduction radiated here by Jade! But let us stop at the elements of this harmony. Staging, choice of composition, attitude of the subject, it is indeed an orientalist construction, as if the djinn has just posed for Ana Miralles - when, as we know, the artist never copies reality, but draws from the catalog of sketches contained in her memory. No doubt in order to leave the field free for this perfect body and the shawl that symbolically drapes it, the tattoos and jewelry are almost invisible here, and the décor is reduced to an absolute austerity: a copper ewer and basin, round arches evoking the stone forest of the mosque in Granada - whose curvature is echoed in the hair of the djinn But, as if to animate this Eve, grapes of light spouting from the sky crush their reflections on the vaults. Of the great Art.
