This is a painting of a seated male nude, which was developed from a study produced during a life drawing class from 2015.
It’s part of a continuing series in which I’m investigating how far it’s possible to push the use of flat colour and interlocking shapes to represent the planes of the human figure in space whilst balancing figuration and abstraction.
Whilst painting it I was thinking of the work of the American Pop Artist, Tom Wesselmann.
I’ve included the original life drawing sketch on which it was based in the product gallery, just in case it’s of interest.
It’s painted in acrylic on cradled board, so may not require framing, depending on personal taste.
