I’ve always been in love of Art. Once, I saw a masterpiece on the web made by the great Tamara De Lempicka: “Girl With Gloves”. I fell in love with it.
I had a piece of paper. It was white and I needed to color it. I took the inspiration from that wonderful picture I saw, but also from the gorgeus and perfect greek profiles which everyone can admire in the ancient sculptures of the wonderful Greece; I started working on that white paper.
I did not know how to color that curvy-woman that I created. I suddendly thought about the primary colors. And I choose them.
Red for the courtains and for the lips.
Yellow for the hair.
Blue for the dress, decorated with a light-blue bow.
White for the glove and the hat.
Then I choose a skin-color and a grey for the columns I draw.
Black for everything else.
I thought, once finished, that it was not beautiful.. But it was strange. I felt like if I was afraid of that sensation my work could cause: RESTLESSNESS.
I decided to call her “Juno”, because of her voluminous body. But she was sleeping. So, I called my first strange work “Sleeping Juno”.
