    Donatella Bianchi's work cannot easily be categorised under one particular movement or another. First and foremost, it is her way of facing the world from an artistic point of view. Works by Donatella Bianchi are usually imbued with a dreamy atmosphere but are at the same time connected to her life. She regularly spends time staying in the remote wooded regions of rural Auvergne. The impressions the area has made on her are found in her drawings of trees and forests, which are produced in Chinese ink and pastel. Nature shows its rough and unruly side in the series titled 'Harmonies secrètes' (HS) and Les témoins immobiles (TI), where we mainly see only bare trunks and branches. They seem to be looking back at us, a little in the way of anthropomorphic beings. Sometimes we see an eye socket or an open mouth amid the weathered, defenseless stumps. Are we standing face to face with a petrified human who has taken on the form of a tree? Donatella Bianchi's nocturnal landscapes are bathed in an atmosphere of mystery, wonder, and silence. The moon is seen, glimpsed through the branches. In some of her other works, we see human figures emerge: sometimes they are fairly recognisable, while in others, they have already faded into white silhouettes. It's the world of memory, dream, and melancholy.

    ​The book is bound as a hardcover with a greyish, dark blue linen. Donatella's eyes peek through the cover, referencing the 'eye-details' throughout the book. The title was embossed into the cover with matte, black hot foil, and invites the reader to touch and feel.
