Balinese Women - Carl van den Bosch

Serigraph. - colours. w23cm h38cm. Signed, 1971, Vancouver, B.C.

Reproduced here number 9 out of a series of 29 (9/29).

Many of his works are derived initially from the endless scribbles he produced during his lunch and coffee breaks. These were completely free form, done on small sheets of notepad paper. The basic form of these three women might have started in one of those. He would lay them out and page through them until one of them struck a chord, and then he would work out a detailed drawing from it. The end result is rarely purely abstract, but it is never purely representational either. He would talk of "design" when he referred to these free forms, but all his eloquence of expression was in the hand, not in language.
