In WHITEWOOD 4, the initial layer of white in WHITEWOOD 3 has now been doubled. The subsequent new layer on top takes on a new thickness, tone and meaning. In contrast, the natural wood seems all the more exposed, for not having been painted. In addition, the three-part division in the painting uses the bodily division of portrait art, dividing space into that of head, corpus and feet, while the two-part painting that precedes it, number 3, is more landscape oriented. Nakedness and covering are at play in a dance of veils.
