Kalika Alper Expressionistic Figure Painting Art Book
Cover painting of the art book: “Wizened” 16″x12″, acrylic
Wizened – Alper’s nuanced handling of color shapes the unusual contours and idiosyncrasies of this man’s face and suggests a master colorist at work. The expression in the eyes is direct and penetrating, implying varying possibilities. The viewer wonders about his identity, and, conversely, wonders how he envisions his identity.
