Henk Aalberts Mooi dit mythologische wezen, hoe langer je kijkt hoe minder het gelaat de menselijke contouren verliest. Prachtig ook hoe je het wezen het dubbele gezicht geeft door partieel kleurgebruik... Klasse, Jos...

Claude de Maisonneuve avatar
Claude de Maisonneuve This being, so expressive with its blue eyes, this border, a demarcation in the face accentuated by this contrast between black and colour, between what is hidden and what is revealed, makes us fear the worst. An intense and magnificent work !

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Henk, Bill, Agniribe, Marcin, Fabienne, Maciej, Wilma, Radek, Tony, Paul, Claude, thank you very much for your feedback and compliments. Some of you do mention the duality in the face. I have tried to express the different aspects in the personality of a faun. At one side it is the drunken, vertile, obsessive companion of Dionysos, at the other hand the reflective, artistic, even wise inhabitant of Arcadia. The chieftain of the faun was Silenus, always drunken but also the wise teacher of Dionysos.
Technically I have teared a first version of a portrait into two parts and used the right part as a starting point for the final version, drawing the left part afterwards. The intention of this collaging way of working was indeed to create that kind of duality in the portrait.
The faun is a grateful topic and not only for the visual arts. Claude Debussy for instance composed his symphonic poem for orchestra 'Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune', the afternoon of a faun. Vaslav Nijinski designed a short ballet with a beautiful set and costumes by Leon bakst. The faun comes to life again in the Hamburg ballet 'Nijinski' of John Neumeier.

Dana Winkelman Jos. You gave form to mythology. When I saw it, I could just say yes, this is what a Faun would be... would look like... It is incredibly beautiful. No rating or comment could do it justice.

Toni Traglia avatar
Toni Traglia This work is less anxious than the two others of the same serie. A confused man spreading introspection and melancholy. These sentiments are present in the two part of the portrait, more tragic in the right one, perhaps because it is more difficult to reach the bestial part of it self. Wonderful how the black work in an expressive way. Nimbleness and despair at the same time, great work Jos.
25 March 2019 at 08:01pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Toni, thanks a lot for this interesting observation. I totally agree with you in your interpretation of the face and the intended expression. It is a great pleasure to notice by your understanding that the intention is clear enough. There is a lot of dualism the person and so should it be in the portrait. Thanks a lot for these kind words.
