Frieze


Drawing with ballpoint, 2,5 by 8 inches.
After seeing a simple drawing by Matisse, "Le Grand Nu," I got inspired and made this frieze, recording my transforming body...

Hello Ria,

just because of the simple lines in this drawing gives it lots of intensity.

Strong!

Thanks Momo! The actual drawing doesn't exist anymore, in a heedless moment I wanted to paint it à la Matisse, which didn't work, totally ruined it...still, I can do it again I suppose ;)

As a man there is no way I can know what it is like to have breast cancer and undergo their removal. In my small circle of friends, two woman have undergone a double mastectomy. However as a man, these drawings do have a profound effect upon me.
