Porna Lisa: from odalisque, to jav pornalisque, to porna lisa, oil on canvas, 24 x 36″, completed today 30/01/2021.
With acknowledgements to Vincent van Gogh, especially thinking of his ‘Night Cafe’.
Henri Matisse, his interiors and odalisques; and last but not least, Francis Bacon, his ‘meat’ paintings. And, while I think about it, Rembrandt, and his ‘Slaughtered Ox’; as well as Picasso, his ‘Women of Avignon,’ and of course Leonardo da Vinci… (plus a load of other stuff too….)
I work within the tradition of Western painting and this piece is firmly situated within that tradition.
