Alex Katz Woman 2 (Cutout), 2020 is a captivating cutout of one of Katz’s signature subjects, an elegant ballerina dancer. This work shows off Katz’s figurative style, with flattened shadows that give the dancer more of a two dimensional feel. Instead of his more common silkscreen prints, this work is a distinctive cutout, with the dancer’s figure floating in the air. The sky blue of the dancer’s costume, her warm skin tone and long blonde hair work together in subtle contrast to create a beautiful color palette. The portrait accentuates the dancer’s long limbs and graceful posture. Woman 2 (Cutout) is best viewed in person, as the free-standing nature of the work can interact with it’s surroundings depending on where it is placed. This cutout is a true showcase of Katz’s creative skill and his artistic instincts, and is wonderful to behold in person.
