Cubism is or can be a simple form of expressionism. One can pull in colour combinations from Fauvism; play with minimalism, and still stay inside the concepts of expressionism. For me, there is always one point of reference for what the portrait is trying to say… it’s usually in and/or around the eyes. With or without eyebrows, the eyes want to talk to you, to pull you in and challenge/dare you to feel something.

What is she asking and telling you here?
