Two Men Contemplating the Nature of Women and the Universe Print Operas
Abstract art is just that – abstract. However, for me it is fun to see the stract in the abstract. While I was creating the series, my two women from Volume 1 made an encore performance in a second painting. Looking at the original painting of Two Women Contemplating the Nature of the Universe, I was surprised to see two female looking figures in the lower left hand corner looking up at the rest of the painting. In Volume 3 they reappeared in the lower right hand corner of the painting and brought along three flamingoes and their pooch. They must enjoy going for leisurely strolls. I was very much surprised when the women reappeared a second time, but I was even more surprised when two males appeared in the lower left hand corner of a third painting. This added to the fact that there were faint glimmers of two women in the lower right hand corner as well as one of the original ones with hands crossed, looking down at the two men. The men were looking right up at her, but I’m not sure that they noticed her. It looked like she noticed them. So the question now became: What were these two men looking at and what were they thinking?
