I am exhibiting in the Art show with a great team at Art Style Gallery. Very grateful to be working with such friendly, passionate gallerists. I exhibited some of my surreal, erotic oil paintings with Art Style Gallery in Kent for their erotica show in 2013. So I am happy to be involved and contributing art to the erotic/ body themed section of the festival!
NEW WORK ON DISPLAY
I created four new erotic, nude oil paintings, specifically for the event. They are finely detailed with thin layers of oil paint and spray paint. I wanted the paintings to be passionate and sexy, sensual, and with a focus on femininity and pleasure. To give the impression of femininity and sexuality, the circular paintings are layered with lace patterning over the body.
