Sometimes I look at an artist’s oeuvre and I understand immediately why he/she elected Judith as a subject. Her story is about the Bible, mythology, antiquity, women, power, seduction, victory, murder. Usually, the artist has similar subject matter on at least one of those themes.
But when I look at Darabos’ portfolio, I don’t get it. Judith is a great black and white (and red) print but … it is unlike anything else he has produced. Darabos has a very nice Rothko vibe going, so what gives? Where does Judith fit in?
I am sensing a class assignment.
