Godesses of Seduction 2014
The 18 art-works of this cycle "Godesses of Seduction" have one theme in common:
the eternal exchange between male and female - longing after love and togetherness
- in exchange for sex.They show the various tensions of sexual attraction, most of
the time putting the women in the more powerful position. Only in some of the paintings
the man embodies the diabolic and calculating seducer.
The titles - sometimes ambiguous - mirror the different motivations, situations and
attractions. The woman tempting the man in various ways, from voluptuousness to being
sheer unreachable. As different as these paintings might be all of them have the
erotic and sensual attraction as well as less obvious symbolism in common. Every
single painting is as unique as an intimate relationship - standing for itself, portraying
its own originality. Powerplay and jealousy, beeing in love and indulging in lust,
seduction and secrets, temptation and appeal - terms that unleash our sexual drive,
terms that bring out our most animalistic self.
