A new graphite pencil drawing in the roundism series in which I experimented with body shape deformations. I had my previous drawing in mind ‘Roundism – 11-11-17 (sold)’ but I wanted to go one step further. The purpose was to keep forms as ‘open’ as possible so all forms can breathe, flowing from one into another. Next to this, they had to connect to the negative space around the female form as much as possible. That is, without loosing sight of the recognition of the body as such. It is a thin line to walk on. All is well that looks well though. Just as long as someone can see the form as intented, I am content. The first goal is reached then and the second goal is to create wonder.
I tried to apply the lessons I learnt from Cézanne, Monet, Rik Wouters and so many others. They set apart forms from eachother with spatial freedom between them. Cézanne’s multiperspectivism (Mont Saint-Victoire) with broken contour delineations is a big inspirational source as to this attempt. I hope that it shows even though I didn’t employ that multiperspectivism to the max. I still like atmospheric depth a lot, just as correct anatomics. For the years to come this will be my search. To extend the possibilities for abstraction within this very dogma I have put myself. No Modigliani for me with his stretched nudes like pullin a rubber band. Matisse, Picasso and so many others deformated nude perhaps in other ways. Maybe I simply do relate to their abstract search only up to the point of deformation. Who will know how I will think of this over 5 years from now?
