Erotic faces

“Erotic Faces” is an ongoing project started in late 2016. It was created after years of experimenting with different techniques and styles since the beginning of my artistic career. Deformism, as present in the project, is a central theme of my artistic work, and especially in the portraits of animals and people. I first started experimenting with deformism in 2004, in a series that had a defining impact on my creative and artistic life.“Erotic Faces” is a series of images of portraits of people with deformed, androgynous, and metamorphic features. They are teeming with sexual/erotic energy and it is easy to spot phallic symbols. Flowing lines, soft edges, and gazes portrayed in the series show various stages of ecstasy and excitation. What I seek to create with this project is to visualize an alternative reality, and yet one not so different than the one we live in today – one bombarded with sexually charged images in media. I wanted to show the erotic images in a direct and obvious way, without taboo or prejudice. The surrealistic series is created with mixed media and a variety of techniques – watercolor, acrylic, pastel, ink on paper, and soon to be added – oil on paper.

Extravaganza

Extravaganza is my latest series created in 2016 with oil on cardboard. The series generally depicts portraits clothed in bizarre costumes with postures and scenes reminiscent of the Renaissance.

“I consider each of my work to be a mirror that reflects the viewer’s inner worlds and memories of other realms, inhabited in other dimensions or times… a mirror that reveals a sphere beyond what is real, tangible, and logical and frees the viewer to create and re-create new images and shapes according to their own feelings, or their imaginations of other worlds and dimensions where they once existed as a particle of cosmic dust that captures and expresses sensations and moods with shapes, colors, light, energy and vibrations when one lays their eyes on a painting of mine.”

Dark and black, surrealist-deformist works - illustration series - oil on paper and canvas

“Dark and Black” is the title of my latest artworks in illustration on paper and canvas, of small and medium formats. The series portrays eccentric characters subject to a deformative force that results in an engulfing, yet innocent darkness and a counterpoint between light and darkness, two forces that have entrapped and enthralled men since the beginning of time, the beginning of existence…

We all have a genetic memory of the beginning of the worlds and of the universe, and if we go deep enough and inside ourselves, we can recreate these realms with the beings that dwell in them… going far enough we may even catch a glimpse of the face of God…
