The Light on Your Face Warms My Heart
The Light on Your Face Warms My Heart, first book by the young illustrator Anoushka Matus, works like a visual column on media inundation: soap opera events in the big world, within your own four walls, in your head.
The Light on Your Face Warms My Heart is a compilation of drawings, commentary, and text fragments. Anoushka Matus places humor, sensuality, and sorrow in short stories about love, sex, friendship, stars, and starlets. Kelly Osbourne, Cameron Diaz, or Justin Timberlake, impressions from a fashion show in Milan or a simple pair of sneakers. Everyday life between dream and reality, what should be and what you want to be, appearance and being. The Light on your Face … is like one of the sketchbooks that the artist always has with her. Sitting in front of the television in the evening, she draws what she feels. She draws riding the tram, in bed with her boyfriend, on the telephone with her family. She even draws while cycling along the busy Langstrasse in Zurich, but then to be on the safe side, only in her head.
