Jos Letschert Dear AL-artists and visitors, thank you very much for your encouraging comments and your compliments. Another (H)era is the third powerful woman in the series, a strong character in a dominant patriarchalistic emerging politic structure. Greek mythological culture is fascinating me because it makes so clear how a struggling society -old but at the same time rather new too - tries to define itself, finding rules, discovering gods, dealing with values, handling the unknown, discovering morality.Things we are also confronting with nowadays, may be more under a vail of complexity.

Jos Letschert Olga, Pictory, Bernd, Jørgen, Marcel, Vladimir, Henri, Gérard, Jef, Katerina, Alma, Fabienne, Piotr, Maria, Wilma, Paul, Alexej, Roberto, Joelle, Inès and Gérard, thank you all for your observations and your comments. The blue eyes are very often mentioned. Yes, the eyes are an important visual element for expression. The contrasts are important too, as some of you mentioned. I am very pleased that there is obvious a way of attraction, or better, a kind of link between the portrait and the observer. Technical I have tried to visualize the complexity of the character by using a lot of layers. Besides that the painting also shows the impermanence by using fragmentation. In a way I am influenced to by the Fayum-art, another culture, nevertheless also another era. I hope I made clear enough that your reactions are very stimulating and encouraging.

Henk Aalberts Jos, your reference to the Fayum Mummy head-shoulder portraits is an eye-opener for me... another great expression...
7 December 2018 at 10:48pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Henk, Fayum is a source, I am always very asthonished how powerful these portraits are. There fragmentation (mostly) is also a source of inspiration for me, as you can see. Thanks for your comment and compliment!

Toni Traglia avatar
Toni Traglia An other expressive and full of subjectivity portrait that seems ask to us an advice for its godly dilemmas showing in the same time all her bewilderment. Impossible to avoid this eminent and also tender gaze. Great how you load this figurative work with expressive and abstract elements. Well done Jos.
8 December 2018 at 12:40pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Toni, thank you very much for your close reading. I am always very attracted to your interpretations which learn me to see my own work from different angles and perspectives. During the more or less intuitive process of constructing there are elements in the work that seems to be there without a specific conscious notion, your analysis however brings decisions to a level of understanding, for me too.
