The Ghastly Nudes of Luo Fa HuiErotica // Saturday, 07 May 2011
Luo Fa Hui brings an intellectual quality to his art. His most recent work has become more unreal, exaggerated and mystical. This mystical element comes from dramatizing the heads of his nudes instead of naturalizing the scenes. The works, done with oil paints, appear a little bit ghastly, as if he is trying to reveal something behind the faces, symbolistic to women and traditional ideas of poetic beauty.
