Hendrijke Meets the Buena Vista Social Club
Its very much in the spirit of my Stravinsky's 'Soldiers Tale' painting , but in this case all kinds of sneaky 'artistic language' is incorporated into the painting. The colours of the Cuban flag have become not just a background but actually invade the dancing figures and also become the pool of water that the 'original' Hendrikje was standing in Rembrandt's painting. [Somewhat in the language of the 1960's.] On the other hand the central figure is simply shaped with only her light shift playing three dimensionally against her flattened image.
