Edna Dott avatar
Edna Dott I 'envy' your charisma, dear Jos.. So obviously haunted, her face reflects her tortured soul. A powerless Demeter of sorts, a Mother that has lost a child, sentenced to a ruthless ever-suffering. Amazing work once more.

Jos Letschert Edna, thank you s o much for your observation, your understanding of the painting, your differentiated feedback, and your compliment!

Roland Hoffmann Successful implementation. Torn and twisted as she always was. I'm sure it will work out alright! If we play together as a team. Artists quest is not only to show the disease but show the way out and believe in it. If not we who else?
Kind regards

Jos Letschert Marcel, Romain, Alexandru and Doris, thanks a lot for your comments. I do appreciate them very much. It encourages. Romain, the impression is simplicity, thanks, so should it be, the reality however is that I needed to use an enormous amount of lines. If you would or could enlarge the image, it would give you an idea.
Doris, ja Danke, diese Zerrissenheit ist immer eine technische und eine ästhetische Frage, noch mal abgesehen von der Konzeptuelle Kontext. darum freut es mir desto mehr das du es als gelungen empfindest. Danke dafür.

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Thierry, thanks. Yes I have tried to express that feeling of a mother in the moment that she realizes that her daughter has been abandoned by a higher god. Her quest for Europe will at the end not lead to any succes. Europe: mission impossible.

Henk Aalberts avatar
Henk Aalberts tortured soul, tortured face, 'Zerrissenheit'... charging reactions on your work, Jos, which is quite a (justified!) compliment on your painting/collage... it made me think of Adorno's words on the existence of art: "hardly anywhere else does suffering still find its own voice"...the simple fact that I had that thought, underlines the strong effect of your intense work...bravo!
1 May 2017 at 08:54pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Wolfgang, danke für deine Reaktion und das Kompliment. Sehr geschätzt!
1 May 2017 at 09:00pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Henk, yes, I am very pleased about the understanding of this image. Thank you for mentioning it. Adorno, yes, I agree too, wise words, and I can underline them. I appreciate your detailled reaction on this portrait. This one hasn't been one of the most easy. It took some time.

Jos Letschert Regina Susanne, danke schön für diese so schöne und auch rührende Observation. Es freut mich das es in diese Art überkommt. Gerade in solche Portraits ist die Schiedslinie zwischen Sentimentalität und emotionelle Berührung hauchdünn.

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Philomena, Isabelle, Joseph, Paul, Frédéric, Jef and Claude, I am very grateful and enriched by your comments and compliments. It is always a question if what I want to express touches the observers too, and I am very pleased when I see that there is obviously a kind of bridge between the image and the responses. You know it all, all kinds of art are sensitive and vulnerable expressions in an uncertain environment of responses. A kind of exposing your soul.

Jos Letschert Vague Reverie, thanks for your observation. Yes indeed, you are right, it has a twofold meaning: a very intrinsic emotional pain and the expression of despair and hopelessness.
