Back Against A Night Sky

Sometimes the paintings that work the best are the small, simple ones. This one is at the minimal end of my spectrum…it was painted over an unsuccessful abstract painting of a sky, which gave the piece a little added depth and texture. The flesh of the back gains a luminosity against the flat (but infinite) black background, and the figure itself is reduced to an iconic, simple, monolithic form.
