Untitled Him & Her
"Untitled Him" , oil and acrylic, 30" x 40", 2012
I’ve always found nudity in art alluring due to the fact that society rejects public nudity, but celebrates nudity publicly through art. Exploring this concept lead me to research 16th century censorship in art brought on by the Roman Catholic Church. After learning of alterations imposed by the church on ancient Greek and Roman statues by way of having their genitals covered or removed, I was inspired to paint “Untitled Him," in 2012.
This year, 2014, I’ve returned to the concept by painting “Untitled Her," which explores the contemporary religious censorship of the female body.
