Someone once said that the difference between art and pornography is soft lighting. My challenge as an artist is to paint something explicit yet beautiful. Conventionally nudity is either beautifully vague, or integrity eroding. Sex is something that unites all cultures; as an expression of love it demands to be celebrated in paint. I am creating a series of pansexual paintings to help everyone understand the inherent aesthetic quality of love. A compliment would be to have your most ravenous “ist” or “phobe” look at my work and wonder how anything so honest could possibly be offensive.
