Model drawing nr 2

In my research (Omphalos project) I start making realistic sketches of women and then try to change them, make them more “Gaia”.

And I also use different materials (charcoal, siberian coal, acrylic paint, black ink) and different sizes of paper. Sometimes the drawings are just 10 x 15 cm. And sometimes 50 x 70 cm.

This one is a sketch made with oil paint. 40 x 50 cm: MEDUSA

Detail of a new painting, with Gaia as the main character. The painting isn’t finished yet, but I think the face will do (although  it’s rather tricky, to show “work in progress”).

Out of her head (and eyes) DNA structures are “pouring out”. So see this as part One. There’s more to come!

And: “Die begin van die aarde”! (poem by Antjie Krog)

Oil on canvas, 70 x 90 cm (detail approximately 20 x 30 cm)
