Bubble Bath Bather, 1970 - 1972

Before photography, you could not see exactly what a jump or a splash looked like: the dynamics were too fast. Photographically, however, you can capture the sensation of movement in an image and then copy that. Using transparent layers of paint, Pat Andrea painted a man who has just plunged into a ... bubble bath, as in slow-motion advertising films. His dripping head is cocooned in water. One still later and the bather looks at us blissfully. Long-term loan from the Cultural Heritage Agency Text: Chris Reinewald From: Museum MORE: 100 jaar realisme, 2020, Gorssel
