Description of “Intimacy”

This painting is included in the “Paraiso” exhibition at MADS Milano Contemporary art gallery in July 2021. See the curator statement below.

Artist Statement

I am trying to capture the concept of intimacy, as an essential aspect of humanity.

With the apparent simplicity of a cave-painting, this figurative representation is minimalist while featuring a deconstruction of both genders’ essential human anatomy to the point of being misinterpreted as abstract.

The three red figures represent primal drives at differing stages of intimacy. Their hot-red tone indicates a passion, focus and optimism that is reflected in the darker tones of the background.
