Artist's Description

This work has been an on going learning experience. I set out to do a painting in the classic renaissance style and combining abstract expressionism as a contrast to the masterwork. Obviously since I had no reference to start with I repurposed “Portrait of a Young Man” by Bronzino as a starting point. The classic pose and costuming gave me a place to start. I made changes to the pose, costume and facial features and did the background as a photo negative of Florentine Landscaping and architecture. This was an exercise, first to see if it could be done, and to see what I might learn by adapting a renaissance style to a contemporary painting. After numerous changes I have become some what settled. This is not about achieving any thing profound, it is about learning and seeing what I could do. I accept the fact that it will under go a few more changes before I am done or dead. Positive Negative Space is not for sale. It’s my chalkboard of calculations. It’s the first picture I see in the morning and the last thing I see at night as it hangs in our bedroom directly across the foot of our bed. It’s a problem that will never be solved. After all isn’t that is the point?
