48" x 48" Oil On Board
In a Hockney-esque manner, Tennis at Ten, Cocktails at Noon examines the potential distortion of the human form. The almost manneristic attention to the elbow and the extension of the arm into racket creates a disjointed and exciting description of physical movement. With duality of weight, the tennis ball appears still yet also carries a sense of movement, seemingly flying across the visual field. The flat color palette allows for a calming or almost serene mood, which parallels the highly physical activity of the tennis player.
