The Venus of The Hague – 11-07-20

This one is a variation on a previous drawing ‘The Venus of The Hague – 29-05-20’ but then constructed out of basic geometric forms only: the circle, cube and triangle. Through this one I show what controlled and distilled passion may bring. My goal was, within the reach of abstraction, to express the essence of the female body.

Even though geometrics abstract it there is a certain roundness to them due to the soft tonal course in them. Such induces a reference to atmospheric depth and that is why my sort of cubism is like a whale is not a fish.

The light source at the upper left is my LED light lamp on the bedside table you also see in the other Venus variations.
