This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.

She Looks At You

I love the weight of this very slight contrapasto pose. The weight is shifted on one side of the figure but which leg is in front or back?
The negative spaces and repetition of the curves create a rhythm.
She's a Ruth Currier student.
This was painted in the loft at 425 Broome St. I was dumpster diving for pallet wood from the broccoli truckers. It was a cheap but very heavy pine and I could find some unwarped pieces for painting stretchers.
