Artist's description:

This painting is made using a cast, of the face of Michelangelo's David, as the model.
The statue resonates with the energy of the Renaissance which Michelangelo preserved in stone.

Painted in grisaille, a method employed by Ingres and used to create powerful dimensions in Trompe l'oeil, the statues features lend themselves perfectly to capturing the sense of perfection which Michelangelo sought.

Painted this on stretched canvas, in Florence, Italy, in 2013.
