I finally found a the head for the man on the right. Like everything else in the painting, Untitled Diptych-04·15·2014, that man's head went through a myriad of appearances until I found one I could accept as true.
Yesterday's drawing returned me to my occasional play with relative sizes. In this case, man versus woman. It is also further investigation into the space created when an object hits a wall (revisiting a similar inquiry seen in the drawing reproduced in yesterday's post). Consequently the shadow defines space between itself, the wall, and the floor. There is a third piece of research. It is the complex invention that is the woman's body. Distorted, as it is, in order to animate the spatial composition. Her crisscrossed limps and torso are severely foreshorten. Her complexity of form, and her relatively large size, are juxtaposed against the comparatively simple upright form, and small size, of the man.
