more explorations in drawing via Giacometti’s transcendent work, which inspired me so much recently in Paris
I am researching Giacometti through several books……one in French which is stretching my vocab to the max…….
Though known primarily for his Femme sculptures he was tortured by a search to represent the void. He had some dramatic associations with women which led him to continually look for meaning through the feminine form and abstraction of body parts…..he was affiliated with the Surrealists for a time, but distanced himself from the analysis of the dream to explore a deeper concept of the Illusion of all form in existence…..that being the everyday dream of perceived reality.

…dancing with the divine and allowing the art to be the bubbles in my blood ….. easily and effortlessly creating in the desire for peace among all beings….thank you for the infinite possibilities……

    Fits your “explorations” perfectly! The touch of shadow and the delicate sketch behind the red are glorious. Sure do like your direction in these newer minimal works. Giacometti would approve!

    amazing……….i must read more about Giacometti

  • thanks Shylie….Giacometti has come to me slowly but I have been encouraged by a friend who adores his work and seeing ‘him’ in the flesh in Paris was very awesome…. just sold a piece in England at Sotherbys for $104 million…….a new record in art sales… THAT is amazing!!
