The Body Is Gentle The Breath Is Sweet
Part of a small series I did last year, which became the main focus for most of the oil paintings from 2019. An eroticism based not around an idea of glamor or really, consumerism. I wanted to look at skin, at flesh only. No fish net no leather no cultural backwash. To look even at the mundane, especially at the so called mundane, and find it not only beautiful, but wildly desirable, worshipable. Did I succeed, I believe I do not know.
BUT. This one I love quit allot. The idea was eroticism in the simple skin, in the feminine lines, and in normality, not in the distortion of sexual entertainment, but naked mundane, being. This one is the closest to me, it exudes a sensual calm, an arousal that is sweet yet explicit in its self. I didn t make any of the nude female figures with the idea of being explicit in mind, I just paint what the vision tells me, nothing more. I realized later that in context of culture it seems defiant or edgy, but on my end, it was all innocence of beauty 3
