Splashes of color highlight the stripped-away areas, adding fields of visual energy to these visceral illustrations.

Vienna Feature: Gustav Klimt

Erotica // Thursday, September 04, 2014
“Klimt was exceptionally animal-like. His body exuded a peculiar odor. As a woman, one was really afraid of him.” This is a quote from Hilde Roth, one of the models that was prone to hanging about Gustav's studio in packs.

Mia Bergeron & Sergio Lopez 'Vanishing Boundaries'

Erotica // Thursday, September 04, 2014
'I have been working diligently for months on paintings for a show that I consider one to be of the most important shows in my career yet. I will be showing alongside Mia Bergeron for a two-person figurative show in Charleston at the Robert Lange Studios gallery. Mia Bergeron is one of my favorite portrait painters out there right now, so to be able to show alongside her (and maybe steal some of her clientele ;) ) is such a huge deal to me...
