I was listening to ‘Between the sheets’ by The Isley Brothers when I completed this one so I tried to capture the sensual feel of the song in my drawing. The curvy sheets invited me to render the body in in the same way. At some spots I let the body flow into the sheets, following the diagonal rhythym. Furthermore, I repeated this principle in a later graphite pencil drawing called ‘Roundism 16-03-20’.
I often tell my students true abstraction lies in imagining the impossible and making sound and essential choices out of an endless sea of possibilities. Without making them any art work becomes plane realistic and that is or should be no fun for anyone. Perhaps one might say that those who find abstract art is different from realistic art, do understand neither.
