Art by Ben and Raisa Gertsberg
Ben has recently completed his Sumo Wrestler In Blue painting, charcoal and acrylic on canvas, 30" x 30". This figurative minimalist abstract was inspired by the traditional Japanese martial art of Sumo wrestling and influenced by the Pablo Picasso's surrealistic and biomorphic exploration of the boundary between abstraction and figuration.
Ben was working on this painting, on and off, for half a year, changing it over and over again. He is currently working on another Sumo Wrestler painting that he had started even before the Sumo Wrestler in Blue, it is work in progress. Will post it soon, stay tuned.
The original painting is sold to an art collector in Yorba Linda, CA.
