"I hate flowers - I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move. ”
― Georgia O'Keeffe

erotic and subtle

 

I found an amazing a series of paintings by Tom Wesselmann I find just bloody fascinating. They take a photographic cropping viewpoint, a bit of silhouette, a concept of space and make an image that is erotic and subtle.

silhouette no. 1    silhouette no. 2    silhouette no. 3

silhouette no. 4    silhouette no. 5

It’s like if Matisse cut out body shapes as the frames for a painting image. I find it makes you imagine as to scene, circumstances, room, person in the image. There’s no specific retrospective out yet for Tom Wesselmann – one comes out on October 21st.

Brilliant.
