Psyche & Amor – 23-05-23
This oil painting ‘Psyche & Amor – 24-05-23’ is finished finally. Long overdue I must say. It took way more time than expected.
Melina Noëlle – 18-04-23
This oil ‘Melina Noëlle – 18-03-23’ is the result of a long search for perfection.
Art Deco Nude – 14-08-22
This oil painting ‘Art Deco Nude – 14-08-22’ is based on my graphite pencil drawing ‘Art Deco Nude – 05-08-22’. I liked that one and saw the potential for an oil.
Roundism – 07-08-22
This work is a conversion of Roundism – 07-08-21 into oil. For the appreciation of the initial reference picture I refer to that.
Homage to Eugène Durieu’s Seated Female Nude – 02-08-22
Surely it is time to pay homage to Eugène Durieu, especially his photograph of a seated female nude. This time I found it was time to return to straight cubist planes after the latest anaglyphical experiment.
anaglyphical roundism – 27-07-22
This oil painting Anaglyphical Roundism – 27-07-22 is my next project after ‘Golden – 18-07-22’. That one kicked up a lot of dust. Of course I like to vary so this time it was all about cubist styling again.
Golden – 18-07-22
Golden is my new project I finished just ago. I thought it was time to extend the Golden series with another oil paint. Golden – 18-05-22 was the last one and I didn’t know what forms to solarize and to style cubistically next.
Blue Velvet – 09-07-22
Blue Velvet is my next one after the more comprehensive work on Geesje Kwak. Time for an elaboration of a previous drawing Solarised Roundism – 01-07-22.
Geesje Kwak and the Secret of the Universe – 28-06-22
This oil painting ‘Geesje Kwak and the Secret of the Universe – 28-06-22’ is my second one. Geesje lends herself to a grand but time consuming elaboration in oil paint. Must be her beauty as well as the lush kimonos.
Golden – 18-05-22
This painting in the Golden Series was designed to give the spectator a most intense ‘yellow’ experience.
Anaglyphical Roundism – 12-05-22
This oil painting in the Roundism series is an elaboration of my graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 25-12-17’.
Fox the Fox – 04-05-22
Fox the Fox -04-05-22 is an elaboration of a graphite pencil drawing Nude – 04-10-15 I made years ago.
Wag the Dog – 24-04-22
My graphite pencil drawing Wag the Dog – 26-09-21 was waiting on the shelf to be put into oil. After my last oil Slava Ukraini – 18-04-22 I thought I’d use another surrealist theme and why not?
Slava Ukraini – 18-04-22
The West has recently become familiar with the phrase ‘Slava Ukraini’. Obviously everyone who is a democrat and values freedom above all can support the meaning of this slogan.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream – 05-04-22
This oil painting ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is born out of some kind of felt urgency. Never before in my life I longed for Spring and Summer in particular than this year.
Ode to Tamara de Lempicka – 31-03-22
This oil is an ode to Tamara de Lempicka and why not? Since I haven’t enjoyed a formal training I had to learn directly from all great masters. Surely I consider her to be one because she developed a distinct style to call her own.
Kali – 23-03-22
Enter Kali The Destroyer. This oil is an elaboration of an earlier graphite pencil drawing ‘Roundism – 26-04-16 (sold)’.
Vesna – 14-03-22
Another Risque painting depicting my muse Julia Filament. Two oil paintings earlier I already did an Ukrainian theme but why not use it once again.
Solarized Roundism – 07-03-22
A new oil painting based on my graphite pencil drawing ‘Solarized Geometry -26-11 21’. After the previous one ‘Rusalka, Free Floating in Russian Waters – 28-02-22’ I was in for something new. In fact, I always am and that mindset prevents me from repeating the same old same.
Rusalka, Free Floating in Ukrainian Waters – 28-02-22
This oil painting I would like to call ‘Rusalka’ in honor of the latest developments in Ukraine. It is an elaboration of my pastel drawing ‘Free Floating Blue Wave Nude – 10-02-21’.
Risque – 22-02-22
This Risque oil looks like a wild Liberace. Or could it be that I was inspired by the song ‘Digital Love’? Often I get these almost synaesthetic feelings whilst listening to music.
Risque – 17-02-22
A new Risque oil painting in the Series by same name. After my last one I wanted to wander in a straight linear landscape again. The motif for this one was based on my colored pencil drawing ‘Risque – 01-22’.
The Meeting -15-02-22
This oil ‘The Meeting’ has a long story. Ages ago, before my cubist and roundistic revolution, I was more into landscapes and surrealism.
Roundism – 10-02-22
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
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.
Risque – 13-12-21
Risque is the title of a new oil, in fact a new series. I felt this one was urgent and below I explain why. The lovely means by making my visual point is the depiction of model Julia Gómez Avilés. It was wonderful to work with her again
Geesje Kwak (2021)
After the success of my initial drawing I decided to dissect Geesje Kwak geometrically even further. Surely it is an ode to abstraction in Japanese art in the first place.
Mother Nature – 22-01-21
Mother Nature holds many secrets but let me sketch you the following. All of a sudden you spot a naked woman on her own in the middle of a forest. Would you be attracted to her or would you run away screaming?
Cubist Expressionism – 08-09-20
After careful considering I chose for a rendering with hatched strokes like I am used to in doing pastels and many a drawing, even though this is the first time in oil.
Frida Kahlo (2020)
A couple of years ago I came across a nude photo of Frida Kahlo. I guess she did a lot of experimenting in the roaring 1920s / 1930s. I was intrigued by her body position: reclining and amidst two cats, completely demanding the camera in a relaxed way though.
