Wilma Eras Interressant. Hoe weinig kun je laten zien om nog het idee te hebben dat je naar een portret kijkt. Ben je hiernaar op zoek?

Jos Letschert Ja Wilma, ik probeer het portret sterk te reduceren via fragmentering. Steeds scheur ik delen eruit, plak ze weer op elkaar, dan weer opnieuw...

Tony Brandstetter Another thought provoking piece Jos, you keep our minds engaged

Toni Traglia Amazing fragment, the emptiness works wonderfully, great job between abstract and figurative.

Roland Hoffmann once again I have not words for the intensity of this fragmentary face.

Oleg Ferstein No one ever does and actually not even able to perceive a face in its permanent and imminent integrity. We are always searching for a tiniest, almost unnoticeable movement of a facial muscle. Just to be sure that we can trust the object. That it is not dead. :) That's why the very genre of portraiture requires this very presence of a movement. And this is an excellent and exemplary work revealing this phenomenon! Bravo, Jos!

Marco Pastori The eye is the most important element. So fixed and frozen in its look and expression. It is able to catch the attention in a unique manner.

Wolfgang Stemme Hervorragend...schweigendes Gesicht? So sehe ich die Mehrheit der Deutschen.

Thierry Lair The choice of the fragment gives my sense more volume to the work and gives to imagine the absent part. Magnificent.

Torsten Richter Durch diese radikale Reduktion ist man als Betrachter nicht nur gefordert,sich selbst in das Bild einzubringen,sondern man kann es ja nur mit subjektiven Erwartungen ergänzen.Und damit wird es zu einer Art Spiegel.
Keine Ahnung,ob das deine Intention war,Jos,aber bei mir funktioniert das.

Jos Letschert Toni, thanks a lot. Yes, it is kind of decision all the time, thinking what could be left, what should be there.

Jos Letschert Roland, thank you, I am very glad that I can reach you with these drawings.

Jos Letschert Oleg, yes indeed, the human face is full of irregular, alienated unbalanced elements. That makes it so attractive. Mostly I am starting with one eye. The eye is staring at me. I am in advantage, with two eyes. Don't stare to me , I think, or you will not get two eyes from me. So, it was in this case. Mostly I am tearing the drawing apart. The slight instrument of a drawer, if you compare it with the possibilities of a photographer nowadays. Fragments are glued on each other, or they disappear. Finally there is what there is left. In this case not so much. Thanks for your nice words.

Jos Letschert Marco, thanks for your kind words. Yes the eye, it is always the eye, as I told Oleg already. It fascinates me. Glad you like it.

Jos Letschert Claude, thanks. I am very pleased that you consider it as alive. That is important to me.

Jos Letschert Thierry, thanks, an interesting way of looking and seeing. Thanks for that feedback.

Jos Letschert Torsten, ja, dann habe ich dich eine extra Aufgabe gegeben. Glaube nicht es war eine vorgesehene Gedanke oder Absicht, aber wohl eine schöne Idee. Danke für deine Rückmeldung worüber ich mich sehr freue.

Jos Letschert Hélène, Piotr, Michaela, Joseph, Robin, Yalçin and Beate, thank you so much for your observations and comments. Very well appreciated dear friends.

Fabienne Bonnet An expressive composition reduced to the essential, a way to abstraction, great work Jos !
12 Nov 2017 at 07:30pm
Robin Mcgregor Wonderful textures and tones. The eye I think has seen much and is no longer surprised at what it sees. Maybe a calm acceptance and wisdom.

Nicole Thévenon Such a small part of face suffices for a strong expressiveness... Great!
