'Twin Towers' - Michael Newberry






For what he describes as "a change of pace" from finishing his painting, Venus, artist Michael Newberry has been working on a series of drawings of the nude interacting with his shadow, about which Michael says:

There is a lot of play on metaphor, on alter-egos, and light and dark.

This is the first one finished in the group. Twin Towers.

There is something sad about the piece. The cast shadow reminded me of the Twin Towers, but so did the flash of light, the strange combination of shapes and shadows above; the tallness of the figure and his twin shadow. Tags:

  1. Nice to see Michael being highlighted on Not PC.

    He is a splendid artist...his website has a lot of impressive work on it.

    That drawing does seem a bit sad.
