Oil on Canvas
Francois Krige has an eye for detail. In his artworks, he manages to capture a soft expression, a glint in the eye, or a peculiar characteristic. The fall of the boy’s shirts peeling open draws attention. The young subject’s face has a soft and curious expression, and his silhouette seems to be almost like a cutout against the lighter background. Perhaps he seeks to capture a boyhood innocence out of nostalgia for his own past.
