Link is just that and
more, if you study the painting there are only four shapes,
all four shapes link together to embrace each other and give
form. One shape forms the thigh, buttock, back and head, the
2nd shape forms the hair, while the last two shapes come together
to form the breasts and stomach. This painting is about fertility,
fitness and general well being and has been painted to instil
a sense of health. I’ve found people lost in this painting
for although at first glance it seems rather simple if focused
upon, but once you start following the lines with the eye
you can soon become quite captivated.
The brushwork is quite course and the paint thicker than
some other paintings but altogether it provides a warmth
that works well in most settings.
