ONE FROM THE ARCHIVE – JUNE 2014

As usual, I had something entirely different in mind when I began The Woman Behind the Curtain. I had discovered a photograph on Wikimedia  of a rather beautiful ruin, which was tagged as the arches at the Sonargaon Folk Arts and Craft Museum in Bangladesh, and was intent on a purely architectural piece. I tried several ideas but none of them worked until…

I have to confess to an unwavering passion for narrow streets. The temptation to go exploring and, inevitably, to get hopelessly lost, is overpowering. This type of street is often laid with cobblestones and not so easy for me this century since wheelchairs do not react kindly to such surfaces and juddering progress is rather painful on my decrepit old body.

The original photograph was charming, if a little on the dark side. It was this darkness that I decided to make a virtue. The title is tongue-in-cheek but the resulting image does look rather like a street that would lead to Roman Polanski’s vampires in The Fearless Vampire Killers, or any vampire film come to that!

Following on from The Woman Behind the Curtain,  I had some more fun playing with the same Wikimedia ruin and EKDuncan‘s theatre curtain.

Once again, I headed to the Rijksmuseum to see what might help me to create something unique. That something turned out to be Mary Magdalene – who would have thought!  This Mary was painted by Jan van Scorel around 1530. Scorel depicts her holding a jar of ointment with which to tend the feet of Jesus. My Mary is holding a jar of massage oil and is definitely looking for earthly delights!

As usual, I had something entirely different in mind when I began The Woman Behind the Curtain. I had discovered a photograph on Wikimedia  of a rather beautiful ruin, which was tagged as the arches at the Sonargaon Folk Arts and Craft Museum in Bangladesh, and was intent on a purely architectural piece. I tried several ideas but none of them worked until I added a background texture from 2 Lil’ Owls.

The effect led me to imagine secret hideaways and whispered plots and, once I’d added the theatre curtain from EKDuncan, I knew exactly what was needed and went straight to the Rijksmuseum.

This enterprising museum has opened its site to artists who can now download masterpieces and create their own work. The woman behind the curtain is Alida Christina Assink, whose portrait was painted in 1833 by Jan Adam Kruseman. I have Pat from The Art of Mimulux to thank for alerting me to the treasures available at the famous Dutch gallery.
