About This Work

Roundism – 27-10-20 Just Abstract Last model session resulted in a nice pose through which I was inspired to continue my roundism series. The general idea was to build up the posture out of essential geometric forms again but make it appear to look realistic or should I say just abstract. This results in a less abstract one such as Roundism – 22-09-20 and the realistic look almost is a reference to the principles of ambiguous image as explained in my description of Gaia – 16-03-16. My pleasure and game is to make the spectator enjoy the plasticity of an attractive body and the sensual geometrical forms at the same time. Communication Next to this, in this posture my model was smiling and communicating with me. It happens when I start to shoot with the camera or draw. I am a lucky guy because I can have a lengthy discussion while concentrating on the drawing at the same time. We talk about postures, themes but also about general things, Covid, Trump and all things art related. The side-effect is that it makes her rexaled and her body positions look express such. Therefor, this one looks enchanting, almost inviting to the viewer. Chiaroscuro In like manner of the last drawing The Cat – 23-10-20 this one is guirded with heavy doses of chiaroscuro (clairobscur), especially in the body. This way I thought the body forms would show a nice firm contrast with the softer folds of the bed sheets.
