"This painting was done in between solo shows when I had some time to play around a bit. It was actually my first attempt at making fabric a large part of the composition and the first time I used a pallet knife for such a significant part of the piece (everything but the figure is entirely painted with pallet knife.) I went on to paint a bunch more fabric pieces and based my last solo show around the interaction between figure and fabric. This piece was very much an entry way into what I’m doing now.
I absolutely love Ingrés portrait of Napoleon — it’s one of my favorite paintings. Every time I get a model in a chair with a regal vibe, I can’t help but think of the throne and the amazing presence that piece has. Added to that, the model just oozed royalty and confidence, so it was inevitable we came up with a shot like this." - Aaron Nagel
