THE EMBRACE

This series revisits the motif of "the embrace", which transcends time and culture in Western art history from Antiquity to today.  

In the 19th and 20th centuries, for example, Gustav Klimt's The Kiss and Rodin's The Kiss or The Eternal Spring reinterpreted the embrace with modernist flair. Klimt's shimmering gold hues enveloped the embracing couple, while Rodin's figures seemed caught in a perpetual dance of love and longing.

This series intends to expand this motif, adding a darker and more ambivalent undertone.
