Pieta - Pilato - Crucifixion

In this large-scale tryptic, the formal reinterpretation (a combination of baroque skies, Giottesque patterns, carved wooden elements, and modern figures made of neat lines and color blocks) of religious themes creates a distance that detaches the spectator from his a-priori's and allows him to reflect freely on the intemporality and the universality of these symbols.

 

The most audacious will see that the Crucufixion has a "Look through my eyes" perspective.

Hi folks, I'm Elise, half-artist, half-nerd. I love strong lines, color blocks and Dutch skies. I have done several painting exhibitions in Amsterdam, Den Haag and Rotterdam, and worked as a portrait artist. Now I mostly focus on illustrations and paintings on request (love to make people happy), and cartoons for myself. If you have the imperious need to hang something on your wall you can drop me an email there: elisetalgorn@yahoo.com
