The Venus of The Hague – 24-06-20

My Next Move

This graphite pencil drawing ‘The Venus of The Hague – 24-06-20’ is my next move on my Venus trail. My last one was quite angular. Consequently I asked myself this question. Should I decided to do another surrealist one ? Hitherto I think I have covered everything abstract I wanted to express and surrrealism seemed a natural choice. Or wait a minute, why not combining a couple of abstract styles with a surrealist touch? That would be jolly good fun, wouldn’t you say?

Throwing in Earlier Themes

I put in some of my earlier themes like ‘singularity’, ‘the golden ratio’. Maybe combining them with ‘the collapse of the wave function’. Lately I am all about incorporating elements of the implicite order as defined by David Bohm. All lighter and darker toned planes are designed to support aforementioned themes, working the subconscious mind of the spectator. Some see desert trails, some see body parts. Others can enjoy the reference to physical laws and perhaps a few can fathom what deeper meaning lies within.

Radha Mitchell

Since there had to be one in the scenery as well I chose a personal favorite: actress Radha Mitchell. In my eyes she represents the pinnacle of beauty. Obviously the latter is the sheer consequence of applying the golden ratio. The blonde bob haircut however shows dark tones and such symbolises nothing is what it looks like. Next to this, why not situate her as a makeshift Sphinx in a desert. A desert naturally is a pool of secrets to discover. Perhaps when you look enough at this drawing the secret of the universy and way beyond will be revealed. What do you think?
