Guusje Bertholet, ‘Sadhu II’, 2014, White Court Art

From Guusjes' series of paintings featuring Hindi holy men. Sadhu is Sanskrit for good or holy man & these spiritual adventurers are revered as representatives of the gods by Hindus. A large & imposing piece there is a real quality to Guusjes' interpretation of this mendicant ascetic; every line on the face tells a story, the deep gaze of wise eyes tells of knowledge. This truly a portrait of depth and fascination.
