‘Woman in front of the mirror’
Signed acrylic on canvas 100×70 cm
€ 3.800 – 5.500
A beautiful painting by Mytaras from the series with female figures in front of mirrors that seal a large part of his creative journey. Here, with unprecedented liveliness and an intense and bright palette on an ungraded and deep-toned red background, the artist depicts the figure inside a house looking thoughtfully at her reflection in the mirror. The strong contrast between the yellow color and the warm hue on the woman’s blouse, the freedom in the shapes, volumes, the design and the clean colors all structure this dynamic composition. Through the peculiar distortion to which the artist submits the caricature-form he transcends technique and logic while consistently continuing to mock two and three-dimensional space. With a uniquely expressionistic brush he skillfully combines types from contemporary art with the traditional values of painting that underlie his artistic creation.
