Sans titre – 08-08-19
This drawing depicts Lily Elsie, Edwardian actress and singer. I liked the hair volume, its curls and plains. More reason to extend the series ‘sans titre’ once more. It started with ‘Louise Brooks – 05-05-14’ although I did not called the series as such. After the first one I thought to called it ‘sans titre’ because I did not want people to compare the resemblance of the portrait to the portrayed. It was about my cubism style in the first place.
In the compositionary stage I started, like always, dividing space into planes and came to the idea to counterbalance straight linear structures with softer roundish blurs. Hence her fine features still would be captured while abstract essence will remain the dominant factor. It is some kind of mixture of cubism and my personal style roundism.
