Curator’s Comments: 

 

Posted some time back, I revisited the piece ‘Women Where Are They?...’ and enjoyed the murky color palette.  The fleshy warm tones melt into the inky blues, making the prone figures shift back and forth in space.  The alternate handling of the vertical pair of legs with the squares of faint patterns is more organic patchwork than Cubistic modeling. The narrative aspects insinuated by the title are mysterious, while the position of the legs suggests a female stepping into water.  I also think the square format of the piece adds an interesting tension for the viewer, as the cropping implies a voyeuristic vantage point, while denying the traditional window frame.  I understand the comments that were made when the work was initially posted, and can also detect a loose thread to Klimt.  Many of the figurative works you have balance flatness of the female form with patterned inclusions, but in a looser and less stylized manner. I do hope and look forward to you posting more work on the site.

The complexity makes me think of Klimt, though it is not much like his work, can't explain the connection in my head, but I like it very much.
