About the artwork
Minimalist depiction of Cassiopeia, mother of Andromeda. (Greek mythology). In this work the due to the inclusion of paper cuts on both sides of the figure, from a distance, the work appears abstract. As you approach the work, depending on the direction of light, one side creates a shadow whilst the other reflects light, creating the effect of a white line. Supplied framed.
Raised and educated in Paris, my artistic interest was nurtured in the 50’s, amongst the art and jazz communities on the Left Bank. I aim to portray the duality between the mundane and the supra-mundane. My modern creations, mainly based on classical mythological beings, express a transcendental vision of abstracted beauty. The viewer must decipher abstract forms which, once the simple lines & hint of shadows are combined, crystallise into clearly defined images. I have developed “entailles” (cuts into paper or canvas) technique, to create relief/perspective and this changes the image, according to the direction in which light falls onto it.
