I am always looking for inconventional vantage points as to looking at a model and this position seemed both sensual and integrous as implicitely explicit. Besides that I imagined drawing her in the drawing, a trick that I pulled in an earlier painting ‘Maris (2008)’. Some part of Dali’s painting ‘The discovery of America’ I used to give my opinion on opinions on nudity. I guess social media filters will soon discover the word ‘nudity’, working efficiently like the sentinels in The Matrix. So I say it once more: “NUDE!”.
