This is my interpretation of ''Seated Obolisque' by Henri Matisse. I am really pleased with this one!!!!

It took approximately 20 hours to make and the time was spread over two weeks. It took a huge amount of focus and concentration to produce this picture and also quite a few moments of sheer frustration. Every piece of glass was put on by hand and each piece was scrutinised and carefully considered. This picture has been fired twice to give some areas a three-dimension appearance.

I have a number of favourite Artists such as: Klimt, Picasso, Matisse, Lichtenstein and Klee. I choose the piece I want to recreate by picking images that dazzle me! They must be pictures that challenge me and give me hours of enjoyment when I am working on them.

I don't want to copy a picture, but instead I try to put my own character into them. I move things about, change patterns and colours, and generally try to put a bit of myself into the end result. I basically just enjoy creating them!

Frame: 33cm height x 28cm width x 1.7cm thickness.

Picture: 226.7cm height x 15.8cm width x 5mm thickness (100% glass).


Photographs taken of Matisse's studio during the mid-1920s show North African textiles draped over furniture, hanging on the walls, and rigged into makeshift theatrical sets that served as backdrops for his odalisque-costumed models. When interviewed about his Odalisque paintings, Matisse stressed that the fabrics "play a role equivalent to the female nude."
