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 some 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.
This painting was meant to convey an ordinary pose, lying down in exhaustion, although it does look extremely suggestive as it came out. But the original idea was something very simple, simple lines, simple body, simple, beauty.
