Kristen T Woodward about the Igor's painting

This brushy figure in red captivates with her simple silhouette, and equivocal poise.

The gestural form combined with variation in the translucency and opacity of the sheer red fabric is stylistically confident and yet not showy or overstated. I especially like the small amount of reflective red shadow on the back of the woman’s legs; adding movement and heat. The smoky corners nicely frame the figure, and set off the asymmetrical balance of space. Her position moving away from the viewer evokes some mystery and universality in her engendered presence.
