Contemporary figurative artist Francesca Currie imparts an intimate portrait of a male from the neck up. Juxtaposed against a dramatic crimson red backdrop and adorned with attractive jewellery pieces, this piece has a sense of consideration. This unique modern portraiture artwork employs classical realism which is also imbued with expressive strokes that charges it with vitality and energy. The figure depicted by the artist presents an impression of a powerful, enigmatic gaze, suffused in a richly hued palette. Ultimately this conveys an atmosphere of divinity, demonstrating a personal sensitivity to suggesting the aura and essence of the model, making for a stunning work of art. The artist renders this original piece in oils on linen, and hand signs the artwork ready to be displayed.
