Male Nude No 2
63 x 52 cms 1997
I approached Male Nude No 1 again.
I like using a vertically divided composition of planes going back behind the picture surface and being blocked, with little squares of detail and the long, narrow strip down each side. I was aiming at a sort of enclosed and threatening silence during which an eddy of leaves swirls up and the nude male approaches. The carpet is a thick, gobby blood red.
