Night (after Michelangelo)
MediumThe nude is inspired to the sculpture for Giuliano de’Medici duke of Nemours’ funeral monument, in Sagrestia di San Lorenzo, Florence. There is no sadness at all. The posture of the relaxed body is simply perfect. Its own colors (metal hues, gold, copper, bronze) are intended to represent the real skin of a real woman. Because the lesson of the inversion taught by Michel Tournier is always present, and with these standards metal stands for life. Red, fuchsia, ultramarine blue are pure life by themselves. And there is nothing funereal, nothing mournful at all. It’s the joy of a fascinating woman taking her pause. This is a love declaration to the great Florentine artist.
