Contrasting Colors

This oil painting ‘The Infinite Waves of Eternity’ might look like something you have seen before. That’s right. It’s an elaboration of my graphite pencil drawing ‘The Infinite Waves of Eternity – 15-06-19 (Sold)’. Now it was time to convert it to color. Again I chose for subtle shades between complementary and therefor contrasting colors red and green. Students I often tell about comparing colours with human relations. These contrasting colors and mixtures of them create a maximal bandwith of relations and therefor emotions. To me it was necessary for what I had to say and that’s a lot.


However, it is also an ode to Kizette, daughter of Tamara de Lempicka. The latter, to whom I already declared my eternal artistic love. That much is obvious. So I present you a chain of thoughts I had. The head in aforementioned drawing I wasn’t particularly happy with and I thought I could do a better job. Goldilocks this time perhaps? Ringlets could match the golden ratio curves in the waves and body perfectly. That thought led to Kizette. Googling her I saw pictures of Madonna in her glory days during her ‘Blond Ambition’ tour. Then I realized her hairdo was a perfect match to Tamara’s kid. She adores De Lempicka as well. Hence, the female’s head looks a bit like Madonna’s and the hairdo got more styled cubistically.

Art Statement

As to artistic considerations the drawing necessitated me to think and invent further. In my art statement to ‘Neo Deco – 05-01-24’ I quoted Oscar Wilde on ‘Life imitates art rather than art imitates life’. This statement is stuck in my throat as a hot potato. Somehowe it keeps popping up as a guideline for my own art. All these styling and swirls I made throughout the years must be for a reason, wouldn’t you think? Surely it had to be me picking up the gauntlet. So here’s my statement. In this postmodern world we created everything can be manifested. Consequently no one can make heads or tails of it. Anything goes. T.V. and the internet flood us with a rubble pile of nonsense. Such is also visible contemporary art. Not me, I want to create beauty and show people infinite waves of eternity.
