On a chromatic level, Letendre gives a particular importance to black in her compositions. Symbol of strength and intensity, black, according to the artist, consolidates and unifies the elements of the painting. She continues: "[...] black is not a danger; color and light fight and win. You do not accept the darkness, you go through it and you win. "2. The canvas is now transformed into a space of exchange; the colors overlap and confront each other, often in a very lively meeting. Movements, tensions and fusions combine in Black and White Abstraction to offer viewers a total experience of color. "
