African (after Gerome)
I’ve endeavored to convey the simple dignity and noble elegance of a human being. Using a brilliant complex painting entitled “Black Bashi-Bazouk” by Gerome as a foil I’ve reduced the concept to its essence – the idea of a person rather than a worldly involvement.
Believing artists aspire to convey their vision in a way that speaks to others, I use pencil, watercolor and oil – each informing the other, to express my visions. A precision pencil drawing like this one connects me to the traditions of the past. Capturing a sense of space and design in relation to a human form is the foundation of my work.
