Oscar Delmar: Sexual HealingErotica // Monday, 07 Oct 2013
'Desire is the ultimate sating of our emotions, the one that answers no false prejudice, no gender difference. A satisfied desire can justify any means to obtain it. Our desires are an allegory of our lives, of our freedom.
And in this context, sex and all its adornments can become in moments one of our most visceral acts, where our feelings may be at their most honest, where we may lose control and get carried away by the simple need to feel free, alive.
With minimalist influences, especially at the conceptual level, and adapting works closer to illustration, this exhibition delves into a recurring theme for Oscar Delmar, one that he has tried before from different points of view. The portraits have been decomposed into isolated elements to strengthen their expression, to highlight those parts which shape the face according to our desires.
In these works, visual and materials wise, the focus is reduced to only a single element, furnishing it with all the expressive power, showing the ability we have to convey our feelings with the simplest gesture.'
