Just like with a lot of my works I want to give the spectator a feeling of alienation. As if you're stepping into a alternate dimension where humans and nature live in harmony. A symbiosis; sometimes erotic, sometimes plain bizarre. In this painting I merged two bodies who were allegedly having sex. They end up as some sort of conjoined-twin-like creature with a iridescent skin. The skin tones are inspired by those beautiful beetles and other insects who change colour in the moving light. The female bodies are intertwined with a snake. Not only a sexual symbol, and a symbol of transformation, but in this painting also representing energy. The snake is about to bite in his tail - about to close the circle that represents eternity. Just like the famous mythological snake Ouroboros.
The painting is first placed between two pieces of cardboard. After that it's wrapped in several layers of bubble wrap and taped to prevent any damaging by moving during transport. Finally the work is packed in a wooden crate to give it maximum protection during shipment. The lit is easily removable so that the buyer can take out the painting without any troubles.
About the Artist
I'm a professional artist from Holland and my speciality is painting. For several years now I have combined erotic imagery with natural and abstract elements to create a sensual symbiosis. Most people think that erotica and porn is solely a somewhat forbidden and filthy world of explicit images, but the poses can be as powerful as the poses we all are familiar with in the classical paintings. This is what I would like to depict in my works. By morphing, blending, and carefully censoring the sexual and explicit images I want to create a scenery where the spectator is confronted with the sexual tension. In the meanwhile the painting still breathes contemporary artfulness, creativity, originality, and individuality. In this brand new era of prudishness (fuelled by social media guidelines) we should be embracing sexuality even more than ever. That's why I want the spectator to shamelessly indulge in a celebration of hedonism. more »
