Artwork ships rolled in a tube.
Since a couple of months I am working on a Niki de Saint Phalle self-portrait for my icon portrait series. I admire the woman and the artist in her. To me and to my artistic work she is one of the most inspiring women artists of the 20th century. I could create dozens of Niki de Saint Phalle self-portraits. This artistic incarnation has become a real obsession to me. Niki is sharing my days and my nights.
This painting is inspired by Nikis shooting paintings and her love for roundings. As artwork title I have chosen an excerpt from her following quote: "I love the round, the curves, the undulation, the world is round, the world is a breast. For Niki "La rondeur"(roundness) has been a feminine form. By contrast, corners and angles are masculine.
