BenCab (b. 1942)

Draped Figure XVI

2010

Acrylic and ink on paper

75 x 55 cm (29 1/2 x 21 1/2 in)

Quick Overview

Fabric and flesh combine into a dance of figures in this powerful and meticulously rendered piece of acrylic and ink on paper. Here, the drapery does not cover and instead acts as an extension to the sensuousness of the movement and posture, complimenting and amalgamating into a graceful rendition of the male nude form. Bore upon their upper torso as a weight, the twill draws a potent energy from the body to exude virility and strength. The intricate shade on the subject’s expanse of skin only adds to the sumptuous execution of the body’s strained posture, each curve and cavity shaded with light yet striking etches of ink, deepening the allure. Bold curves of color accentuate the whole figure bringing into completion a picture of physical perfection.
