The Elusive Beauty
Like Arcturian Dancer, Kneeling Fauness, was a best seller. The work goes beyond the carnal aspect of human love to show the elusive appeal of beauty, as symbolised in the woman floating away from the viewer, dancing in the current of sea and can not be held back.
Autumn sending is a further treatment of the theme of Visma and K, the lovers. Its crucial to understand the work goes beyond the carnal aspect of human love to show the elusive appeal of beauty, because it is in vain to hold her back.
‘With the most primitive means the artist creates something which the most ingenious and efficient technology will never be able to create.’
Arcturian Dancer was made inspired by a friend work Cal Mero from Melbourne. The model seemingly effortlessly holds her breath underwater appearing to my imagination like a swimming ballerina.
