Roundism – 10-02-22

cubist nude oil painting

This roundism oil painting is quite different from the last roundistic one, called ‘Singularity – 23-12-21’. Whereas the latter was all about the use of shiny colors, the experiment at hand has another color range.

Singularity – 23-12-21

cubist nude oil painting

After my initial graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism (Singularity) – 01-06-17’ I also made a pastel Roundism (Singularity) – 05-06-17. Basically it combines a formalistic point of view on artistic nudity with a deeper meaning or narrative. The latter is about the principles of singularity.

The Implicite Order – 05-02-20 (sold)

Cubistic nude oil painting

This one is the oil version of a previous drawing ‘Roundism – 11-01-20’. The tonal gradients in that drawing subtely shifting, some abrupt some gradient, represent life itself in all its expressions.

Roundism – 13-03-18 (sold)

Cubistic nude oil painting

Some years back I saw an incredible oil painting by Herman Gouwe of a sunset in cyan, yellow, purple and red and I it baffled me. How could bright shining light ever be portrayed better than this.

Roundism – 02-02-18 (sold)

Cubistic nude oil painting

Based on a prestudy in pastel (Model – 01-12-18) I made this painting in oil. My objective was to stay in line with the fauvist colour kind of strokes (in case of the pastel they were pretty much ‘broken’ and ‘open’ strokes / patches) but also to get to a more abstract feel by means of rendering the model slighty cubistic.

Roundism – 06-07-16

A second painting in the same roundism series, based on the variations on the same theme drawings. In this one I combined cubistic forms with pointillism.

The return of Bettie Page – 12-08-15

cubistic nude oil painting

This is the first roundism oil painting I made of American pin-up and celebrity Bettie Page, after a first drawing I made in the beginning of 2015.

Bettie Page is one person I always admired. Not only she is sexy as hell but also because she deared to flirt with her sexuality in an era throughout the world many were prunes (and still are today).
