In this surreal portrait, heavy and light forms pull on each other creating a dynamism in an otherwise serene figure. Various techniques have been used in this painting including glazing alongside highly textured paint applications. The smooth and luminous glazes of the flesh contrasts with the tangible coarseness of the abstract forms.
