no surprises


I’ve been keeping myself busy this morning looking at David de las Heras‘s paintings. Really, check out his flickr for more images than I’m sharing here. His rendition of the human figure is well executed. I love the way their passivity in relation to the viewer (barring the last painting, of course), offers possibility of narrative. I’m also engaged in the contrast of muted colors with highly saturated colors. From the obvious use of paint over figures in the first two images, the red pillow in the corner of the third, and the overturned chair in no surprises, this off balance of color temperature offers the eye much to take in.
