Something from Nothing ?

Oil on wood panel. 30x40cms

Completed today the painting above using complementary colours orange, blue and white with a touch of yellow ochre to explore 'white on white'. I particularly enjoyed painting the trompe l'oeil battered edges of the corrugated cardboard. In this photograph the actual shadow of the wood panel and the painted shadow of the edge of the cardboard merge. Here there is a plenitude of emptiness with the major picture inside the picture torn away and absent and the minor picture inside the picture a small  residual fragment of photograph with a pensive academic nude.
