Artist Statement

The basis for this painting was also a Life Drawing of a live model. There were some wonderful linear shapes and negative space going on in the original drawing, and I felt that I wanted to emphasize these shapes. So the painting became an exercise in minimalism – an attempt to answer the question, “What are the minimum number of lines that I need to convey the three dimensional quality and pose in this composition?”
