One of the first paintings the artist did. Obviously the artist has had a feeling for geometry since the very beginning, which is clearly demonstrated by the countless planes comprising the female subject and by the large cube stuck in her hair. But more importantly says the artist: “I was beginning to take art very seriously and the painting shows my intention to express something that is beautiful on the whole. A young artist when starting out often turns to gratuitous displays of pathos, even ugliness, in an attempt to express a sense of seriousness, if not importance, in respect to his work.”
