LP- Stained Glass
Oil on Canvas, 100 x 80 cm
About the artwork
In 'Stained Glass,' we see a ruffled neck and multiple skirts - commonly linked to Victorian costumes. The composition of the subject within the painterly bricks gives the impression of figures in stained glass paintings, allowing pattern and subject to form differential aesthetics within themselves. This portrayal of his female subject as such further emphasizes the artist's elevation of the female form in art.
