Art Description

Drawing: Fabric on Paper, Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric) and Other.

One of eleven pieces from Transcendental Aesthetic II which follows on from Transcendental Aesthetic I. This three part series is based on images of Brigitte Bardot taken by Sam Lévin between 1959–1963, which Bardot said ‘…managed to capture my quintessential natural, reliable and sometimes even sublime beauty…thanks to him I will remain in the eyes of the world eternally beautiful, young and unforgettable’, (Sam Lévin, 2001, p. 6). 
Part I, II and III mirror a three part series of ‘Late Style’ piano curated and performed by American pianist Jonathan Biss over 2016—2017 at Milton Hall, London. Part II was influenced by the Schumann’s Op133 and Brahms Op 118, performed in late March 2017 — exploring aspects of time, space and memory. Use of colour in Part II and III were incited/motivated by Josef Albers ’Sunny Side Up’ show, which took place at the David Zwirner Gallery, London, in early 2017.
