The Implicite Order – 11-03-20 (sold)

A continuation of the previous painting called ‘The Implicite Order – 05-02-20’, commissioned by an American collector. I shifted toward yellow / purple complementary relations, counterbalancing the heavy tonal clairobscur differences. In contrast to the first painting I experimented with some more abrupt tonal contour delineations but within a rhythmic scheme, placed throughout the linen in circular patterns.


I also put some balance in the saturational mix, making some areas unsaturated and some more brilliant. I think the yellows – the hardest ones to keep attractive in a painting because so screaming when overexposured – are encapsulated by the purples quite nicely so they play a modest part from a quantitative point of view. This principle I derived from something I read on the quantity of yellow, orange, reds, etc. in relation to the golden ratio.


Of course the golden ratio curve plays a key role in this painting and through the use of purple and yellows, contrasts are entwined, swirling into eachother like an eternal dervish of life. How explicite can I be, portraying the implicite order like this.
