Older Naked Female

I left my camera down south and can’t photograph what I am currently working on. That’s just as well. So here is a piece from two years ago. It was accepted into an upcoming show at the Zullo Gallery in Medford, MA, organized by the Monotype Guild of New England.
Its a monotype inspired by André Kertész, who I’ve talked about before, and who’s beautifully distorted photographs of the female nude excited me as a young man. He used distorted mirrors to achieve the twisted form. His work subtly refers to the classic aesthetic and the same time reflects the then current developments of avant-garde thinking.
The paper was accidentally torn as the print was pulled. Here you can see it (on the bulbous hip) before I repaired it with an archival paper adhesive.
