Solarized Roundism – 07-03-22

cubist nude oil painting

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.

cubist nude oil painting

Drawng often is called the primary process and I like it so much, brimming over with an ocean of ideas, that I forget about transfering those ideas to the secondary stage: the canvas. There always is something to dust off and in 2017 I used ‘Nude – 03-09-15’ to work out a bigger theme, called ‘The Widow of Aleppo – 18-05-17’, after Rembrandt’s painting Jeremiah lamenting Jerusalem’s destruction. Since the war in Syria sort of came to an end but the people still suffer, I found it appropiate to do this anew but then in oil.

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 – 20-02-18

cubist nude pastel drawing

This oil painting is the final piece on the series of the pastel and graphite pencil drawing on the same theme. I decided to abstract the female figure even more, reducing the oily reflections on her body to cubist planes, creating rhythym and diction of light and dark tones.
