Thanks for introducing me to Paula Rego - her artwork is awesome! Yes, I can see a resemblance in the way that she posed her figures with subtle distortions.
Many have told me my style resembles Picasso. Yet, I suspect that my simplistic, cubic style is due to the fact that my visual imagery is mostly internal where the details are lacking. If I were to paint details, I’d likely need to be observing from an external reference. My mind simplifies everything.
Thank you, ziter. Just wondering - over the past few decades my imaginary female figures have been mostly reclining, or positioned on the ground or sometimes kneeling. Only a few of my figures have been seated. Perhaps within my imagination, a standing female figure might seem too confrontational, as if, to be ’standing her own ground.’
