About the artwork Geometric Redux Study after Vermeer's Girl With Pearl Earrings

For this series of studies, I tried to revisit some of my favorite masterpieces by painters I admire the most in a geometric redux reinterpretation/homage. To do that I start studying the work for a lot of time, observing every little detail of the painting, the palette of colors used, the contrasts between light and shadow, the shades, and the shapes.

The next step was to develop a lot of sketches, trying to deconstruct the original composition into basic shapes. I searched for alignments, patterns, stylizations, reductions of colors and shapes up to a maximum point of formal simplification, just a step before the original work couldn't be recognized anymore. And then, I start putting the "puzzle" pieces together on the computer, fitting shapes and overlapping transparent gradients as in a vectorial "vellatura" so I could recreate the original artwork in my style.

About the artist Andre Brik

Andre Brik was born in Curitiba, Brazil in 1972. Architect, illustrator, and art director, he also studied typography and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and at Parsons School of Design in New York.

In his works, you can find some of the 1920’s Plakatstil graphic style and polish posters with their clean lines and flat contrasting background colors, their visual puns and wit, and subtle irony. There is also nonsense, humor, counterculture, dada, surrealism, and punk rock. The ideas are born from the observation of the elements of everyday objects. Then the artist begins a long process of sketching to deconstruct and recombine shapes, colors, and meanings. Finally, a careful selection of outcoming ideas is chosen to be digitally developed, painted, and finished as a graphic art illustration.
