A New Series of Drawings
Submitted by Newberry on Fri, 2007-12-07 05:44
For about the last four or five months I have been concentrating on finishing one painting, Venus--and the finishing touches are coming slowly. That happens.
For a change of pace, I am working on a series of drawings of the nude interacting with his shadow. There is a lot of play on metaphor, on alter-egos, and light and dark.
This is the first one finished in the group. Twin Towers.
There is something sad about the piece. The cast shadow reminded me of the Twin Towers, but so did the flash of light, the strange combination of shapes and shadows above; the tallness of the figure and his twin shadow.
This 2nd one, is probably finished, I need to think about it for a few days. It's called: Adam Turning Away. The fig leaf is one of most ridiculous conventions of Christian influence in art--I enjoyed poking fun at it by creating a shadow over the crotch. The cast shadow of the whole figure has a steady-fast stance that I like and the figure is turn away--I see this as a rejection of original sin.
