Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic on Canvas.

Gallerytalk.net: A portrait is usually defined as a representation of a person,
which is similar to the external and internal constitution of the
presented. What is a (good) portrait for you?
Maxim Fomenko: During my studies, I painted portraits for many years
and finally came to the point where I did not know how to proceed.
How can I enrich the centuries-old history of portraits?
And so I began my "no face" series, inspired by a quotation from Picasso:
"Why don't the the eyes be replaced by sexual organs?
eyes between the legs? "This idea I just tried and painted on this
way Francis Bacon and a portrait of Lucian Freud. When I realized that I could leave off
the faces in the portraits, but still show the person
I got too bored to paint faces, because that is how the viewer is forced,
to be wondered. I am the fuse of questions and everyone answers this for themselves
even depending on what individual feelings and memories
they got. It is important to me that the viewer must think for himself and not
just see what I thought. This is my job as an artist which
I really like.
Inspired by Francis Bacon!
the picture is one of a series "no face".
