This abstract figurative painting portrays a nude man seated in a relaxed manner. He is an African American whose bronze and brown skin tones contrast with the gold rug and dark blue walls. In this artwork, I combine both representational and abstract elements. The objects and shapes are readily recognizable, but are portrayed in a stylized manner with outlines in strong black lines. The intense light and dark contrasts create a bold, compelling image that conveys a mood both sensual and contemplative. These dramatic contrasts are enhanced by the use of black paint on the sides of the canvas, so that it can be hung without a frame - Ready to hang.
