His newest series of drawings and paintings portray modern odalisques. Young women with loose hair in ornamental, cluttered interiors recline in coloured robes or striped pullovers; a few are exposed on colourful carpets or poised upon patterned bedding, smoking and confident. The interiors painted with a mixture of pigment and rabbit glue on untreated canvas are reminiscent in their expressionistic, abstracted, childlike style of bohemian studio scenes, of the painters of German Expressionism, their flatness calling Matisse to mind.
