Fish Fingers (45.5 x 61 cm)


In this uncomplicated, harmonious painting, a woman’s porcelain, feminine features are outlined by the well placed, heart shaped neckline of her gown. The fish-like object defining her waistline, further emphasizes her femininity.

The artist’s choice of the negative or passive, (yet strong in value), blue colour of the woman’s dress, according to Goethe, a poet and scholar, indicates a passionate and tender frame of mind. Perhaps the artist viewed his subject in this manner? Note the artist’s use of brightly coloured lips and another ‘cool’ colour, green.

Is this the same subject who appears in another work in the artist’s portfolio – Fish Tank Observer in Miscellaneous?

Acrylic on Masonite, date unknown. (Cleaned and framed.)
