2016, pastel and ink on paper, 20 x 26 inches
Delight is one in a series of coloured nudes. The position of the body on a matte black space, gives the feeling of no perspective and the image can be displayed in any position without losing the pose’s eroticism. The female form is flanked on either side by a transparent layer which adds to the surreal feeling of confined spacelessness. The body is covered in glossy liquid, adding to the desperate silent wantonness of the figure, from it’s mouth escapes a silent moan of ecstasy.
