After Maillol

A strange erotic scene from my 2006 oil pastel series that never graduated from its boring working title of "Red/Blue". This one was inspired by a very linear drawing by Maillol which had an even worse title (Deeper in). The female figure seems to be in extremes of pleasure - almost disintegrating in the tangle of bedsheets. The dog has a jealous air . The Cypriot shutters have worked their way in to the composition as so often with me. And the dark skinned man with a fair-skinned woman was a combination that interested me at the time. I also made a lino-print of this composition which is somewhere way back down in this blog under the title "After Maillol and Picasso".
