The Essence of Sensuality by Malcolm Liepke

Erotica // Monday, 05 Aug 2013
1

Born in 1953 and raised in Minneapolis, Malcolm Liepke's masterful use and knowledge of his chosen medium is the culmination of a long and ongoing apprenticeship, with compositional and tonal nods to the likes of Singer Sargent, Whistler, and Degas. The women depicted in his paintings include the innocent girl next door aside glamorous fashionistas of a bygone era. These slender figures with elongated limbs and pouting lips are indeed indicative of the catwalk models of the fashion world, yet through Liepke's skillful brushwork he flips the proverbial finger to the Photoshopped, touched-up cover girl imagery of modern society.
