Matisse Homage


One of Henri Matisse’s sculptures served as sketching inspiration during a class at the L.A. County Museum of Art.

He sculpted an extraordinary transition from representational to symbolic, finally bordering on the surreal.

Matisse’s five masterful portrait busts, all rendered in one composition, were an extraordinary challenge to capture quickly, as the exercise required.

I was inspired to create an impressionistic rendering in contracts to the hard surface definition of the sculpting itself.
