A 2nd tribute to Bettie Page – 13-08-14
A second ode to pin-up and 1950s’ U.S. celebrity Bettie Page. I’m thinking of cross-overs here – between realism and cubism. Still not there, I think because I think the forms are rather ‘closed’ in spite of the fact that I like the roundish shapes of the musculature on her back.
In fact it could be called be called a kind of styled impressionism or ‘cubism light’ but I don’t mind. I just like making it and perhaps one day one art critic will come up with a suiting name for this type of artistic style.
New cubism therefor is just a working title and also evolved to ’roundism’ later on.
