Part of the roundism series. My last graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 28-04-17’ had a rather odd-looking wobly appearance. Intriguing in its own right but as to the next one I had something different in mind. My regular model has many different poses to offer. Most of then are artistic of nature. Explicitness is another quality. However, when it comes to posing for art works I have no need for it. Such themes are not in popular demand. This having said, sometimes I am intrigued by the idea to include genitals. Why not, because after all they are just another body part, right? Could I have her posed with her legs slightly opened but still create art, not porn? And if in this respect my aim was meant to be true artistically, would people still get it?
Whilst drawing, tossing and turning the solution presented itself in some sort of way. The pose was quite explicite but abstracted it looses its erotic connotation and artistic value takes over from then. It is one of those aspects to enjoy. I work with models for a very long time. What is needed is a mutual respect with, yes, sometimes a flirt, but always a keen eye on art creation. Besides that, it is more fun to portray the beauty of a woman in all her qualities. Thus the spectator will keep on looking in stead of be exhausted on a sexual whim.
I was fascinated by the squares and round forms I detected in the body. I had some vague idea about quarters of circles, inspired by my model’s beautifully shaped buttocks. Moreover, I was forced to to use them anyway because of the horizontal stroctures at the lower left side. It turned out to a charming archetype kind of cubist drawing that way.
