New Painting: Evidence of Objects

This is a new painting based on a 2018 painting titled ‘Seated Nude II’, so thinking of calling it ‘Seated Nude II’ (Redux). Whilst painting it I was thinking of a (Wayne Thiebaud?) quote (heard on the Savvy Painter Podcast?); ‘Shadows aren’t objects, but they are evidence of objects’ (or something to that effect). It strikes me as an apt description of both what we see when we look at a painting, as well as a general description of the act of seeing, so alternative (and rather clunky!) titles for this piece are ‘Evidence of Objects’ and ‘Picking Up Shadows’. Other suggestions gratefully received! (Flashe vinyl on unstretched canvas 36″ x 24″)
