Fallen Angel, 40x60cm.

Fallen Angel. The celestial background is dynamic and soft. It removes the feeling of time and space, as in the golden backgrounds of Byzantine mosaics. With the only difference that the golden mosaic was static and boring. Puttis fluctuate on gentle Aquamarine tones, taken from Cabanel’s Birth of Venus, but here become bass reliefs. Like the marble relief attached above the architrave of a Greek temple, but abstract. Yes with colours, but not many. 3 or 2 figures appear. It’s unclear. I like when thins are unclear, leaves more space to imagination. But I recognise the flesh tone and the blond hair. The title suggests one of them is falling. I feel it visually through a sense of suspension or suspense. Then I wondered, why Puttis are always of the Blond Male Sex? What’s their gender? – –
