Pink Ribbon #VII
by José van GOOL
32 x 74 in | 80 x 185 cm | Acrylic on canvas
Van Gool’s subjects are women, strong women, with coal black hair. The brief stretches of marble-carved shoulder, neck, and arm are either clearly defined or softly impressionistic, but they convey each time a sense of focus and readiness, perhaps of gravity.
Van Gool’s mastery of color drives these emotional works, as they inhabit a movement unique to van Gool, one she summons up through her dramatic charge of color.
