About This Work

Roundism – 19-08-20 Solarized she lays in cubistic forms. I tried to walk the path of Man Ray’s solarization and combine it with cubism. Solarization Also called ‘the Sabbatier Effect’, solarization became an important part of his oevre and legend has it that one time his model Lee Miller entered Man Ray’s darkroom and overexposed a photo he was developing. After his first rage he came to his senses and saw it created beautiful, somehow surrealist effects. My Own Attempts I did a couple of pastels on Man Ray some 8 years back and recently I made some, like Roundism – 27-04-20, Clara – 24-04-20, Roundism -31-03-20, Roundism 29-03-20 and Roundism – 04-04-20. This drawing however differs from the previous ones in this respect that it shows only straight cubist plains, no roundish forms. Composition Basically the model was reclining on my bedside but her body position looked very straight with only two main diagonals: in the arm and the thigh. In order to improve the overall composition I added dark blocks in the lower right corner and in the upper left. I also put a diagonal fold in the mid-section to the right and some loose folds to the left so the arm would not float too much, being sufficient surrealistic as it is by the solarized aura. It has become a kind of cross-over of styles from the past and time will tell what ways I will turn to. Perhaps adding color?
