Nude with Eggs and a Rooster2

“Nude with Eggs and a Rooster” 24 x 30 Oil 2014 by Tom Kelly

A painting mostly about reproduction. Using the visual dichotomy of the eggs floating in timeless space along with the rooster and the nude the viewer is challenged to both think about what he is seeing as well as the duality of meanings in the subject matter. The pose of the nude, her expression and location of the rooster all add to the mental conflicts. The pose was taken from a drawing I found that I drew from a live model 20 years ago.
