Sex Appeal

This Video is my inspiration to the next step: Video.

Rockets from Beyonce.
This video shows a simple & sexy side of every woman but without being a promiscuous side.

The singer Beyonce Shows that perfectly.

A Group Body

Image

This artwork was done by my class in Angola.

12 Students, 4 canvas, 1 body.

We split The WOMAN in warm colors because she is sexy and cosy,

in the left side for been the heart of the relationships and families.

The MAN in cold colors on the right side for being the worker,

symbol of respect and coldness, even the stroke is straighter.

The background is a collage of pieces of newspapers.

Note: The deformation was inspired by Guernica from Pablo Picasso

SelfPortrait

I couldn’t show what I want my drawing.

Especially in Selfportraits.

A picture in more exact that a drawing.

I hope the Simplicity of being see,

and the flaws on my hair, face and skin show people how simple life should be.

I don’t want them to be sad or happy photographs.

I just want them to be simple.

Naked & Nude

 

John Berger defenses in this episode that ” Naked is being by ones self and naked, without being viewed as an object. Nude is being viewed as an object of sexuality or pleasure. The nude paintings were specifically for men to view as pleasure images.”

 

Quotation by Kenneth MacKenzie Clark, Baron of Saltwood
‘To be naked is to be deprived of our clothes, and the word implies some of the embarrassment most of us feel in that condition. The word “nude,” on the other hand, carries, in educated usage, no uncomfortable overtone. The vague image it projects into the mind is not of a huddled and defenseless body, but of a balanced, prosperous, and confident body: the body re-formed. In fact, the word was forced into our vocabulary by critics of the early eighteenth century to persuade artless islanders that, in countries where painting and sculpture were practiced and valued as they should be, the naked human body was the central subject of art. ”

 

 

The Female

Matric artwork, 2013.

This is what I was doing last year, painting in soft pastel. 

Studying the body and the female siluette.

I never could draw exactly what I have in mind but when I showed people this one

I hear a lot of ”what a nice bump”.
