Cindy – Nude on a Blue Cushion

Such was the model Cindy’s commitment to this ambitious project that she delayed her return to her native Australia! This allowed David to complete this evocative portrait of the young woman seated on a large blue cushion and illuminated from behind on both sides by two large windows. The backlighting inspired David to introduce some surprising flesh colours, which nevertheless express the impressions he was seeing at the time, and create a powerful image.


An ambitious work with strong light and colour effects. 1978.
