Martin Eder's Galactic Nudes
Martin Eder's paintings feature young, nude women situated among riotous clouds of color. Intimate portraits become distant and aloof, an impression that is heightened by the layers of epoxide resin that partially seals the pictures. The glossy surface seems like a layer of protective glass but is also reminiscent of everything from the covers of glossy magazines to plastic dildos. His works are primal fantasies in which boundaries are blurred between one's own subconscious and the collective.
