falling – 36 x 24 Oils on Canvas by Jennie Rosenbaum
well, after weeks of work I feel it is finally ready. I still think the blindfold is a little static but it is as ready as it’s going to be. in a way, the precision of the blindfold contrasts with the chaos and looseness of the figure. I wanted to capture movement and an element of fear. those who have seen it in person (before this stage) have all said that they don’t know if she jumped or was pushed but that it is free and frightening all at the same time. this is a compliment! I am happy with her motion and the looseness of the brushstrokes. I am probably as happy as I am going to be with the blindfold (knowing that I will never truly be satisfied there!)
I think the impact of this series when brought together will be quite something..
