For me this painting melds the painters creation of color and shape with his later reflection and imagining and drawing of faces. The expressionist melding for me lets the painting support both the interest in color/shape with dramatic expression on a human level. For example the suggestion of eyes on upper left bringing together lime green, purplish blackened red with a floating orange heart nose maybe, and with green-blue-orange underlined lips maybe allows the painting to do all the talking.The painting becomes its own commentator—and for me powerfully so.
I love all the white space in the painting for it gives a focus and spaciousness to the expression of individual components.
