Artist's description:

Another in my Humanist Icon series, this work celebrates the figure in a format reminiscent of the gilded panels of traditional icons. The painting was executed in oil, directly from a live woman model. I mix the oil media and apply it to the canvas with a palette knife with strong gesture and focus. Then later the gold leaf is applied to give luminosity that contrasts with the lush ultramarine background. I have always been taken by Anish Kapoor's pieces which incorporate velvety layers of ultramarine pigment, and I wanted to have a similar plush effect behind the raised texture of the figure.

Materials used:

oil and gold leaf
