"Red"

Jacquelyn Bischak's avatar Jacquelyn Bischak

My entry is a "Traditional" figurative oil painting on Belgium linen. I've alway admired the Renaissance Period of human history because of the dramatic shift in human thought and perception. The transformation is amazingly demonstrated in the artwork produced at that time. My painting "Red", reflects my hope for such a metamorphosis in our time. Technically, this painting was a challenge. It was my intention to not only hold it together with proper drawing, design, value, color, brushwork, and edges; but to overcome the challenges of the "idea" against conflicting demands of my interpolative and exaggerated tensions in the torso, fabric, chroma, and value structure to increase the emotional impact and maintain a perceptive balance.
