Man Ray’s solarization was on my mind when I made this one. Mondriaan also was because he strived for an ideal division of planes in a certain space. Next to this I feel close to Tamara de Lempica’s conal body shapes. I like to combine them all and this is the result. I drew the face slightly realistic so the spectator would be tricked into believing the abstract bodily forms.
