Geometric Redux Study after Vermeer’s Girl with Pearl Earrings

The geometric redux reinterpretation homage series starts with observing masterpiece painting in details: the palette of colors used, the contrasts between light and shadow, the shades and the shapes.

Then Andre sketches to deconstruct the original composition in basic shapes and primary colors, using a support grid or a “flexible template” to help to find the simplification possibilities but without limiting the creativity. Within this grid, the artist search for alignments, patterns, stylizations, reductions of colors and shapes up to a maximum point of formal simplification, just a step before the original work can’t be recognized.

Finally, the artist starts putting the “puzzle” pieces together on the computer, fitting shapes and overlapping transparent gradients as in a vectorial velatura so he can recreate the original artwork in his style.
