Basic Instinct

When it concerns sex issues our society is still divided into two camps. Some think sex evil and low, it is for them the brute that kills any spiritual evolution. The others make it a great cult. On the one hand we can see the sex topic everywhere. But some reason it’s virtually ruled out that this very basic instinct can combine both the spiritual and the physical. It is important to realize the gist, come to the point where this basic instinct was conceived. I am talking of the inner sex and the base of it further development. According to my theory, all our basic sexual instincts except their straightforward manifestations are the instrument in the hands of an artist. Any person (viewer, reader, hearer) being spiritually united with this or that work of art – gets his own share of moral orgasm, which can only be compared to the physical one. The only difference – the feeling “after” lasts much longer. Numerous artists have used this instrument beside brushes and paints. This is what I think attracts us so much to their works.

In this series I’m taking the basic instrument – my body and inspired by great artists use their techniques, my experience and plunge into the intercourse to unite and be one. I’m overwhelmed by desire to not primitively mimic the technique, but plunge inside, learn what was driving the genius, what inspired him. Before starting each work I studied in detail the work of the artist. It’s a kind of a present to my favorite artists. All the materials or textures used in the compilations were painted by me in oil. Most pictures are self-portraits.

I very much agree wih you, sexuality or eroticism are energies and drives that are essential parts of our interaction with the world and are inherent elements of the creative process, involving us all, artist, model, viewer in arousing and sharing - it is a big part of what makes us want to open our eyes and go out and experience and try to become part of our world.

Your basic instinct theory sounds very interesting, I'd love to hear more about it - especially because I didn't quite understand what you mean.
I do understand the moral orgasm and I understand that sexuality creates a spiritual connection as well, but i don't see the link between sexuality as a physical instinct to art. While sexuality is a basic instict I don't find art to be one; I know you are talking about the "gist" but still, maybe you could explain it to me some more if you have the time, I would appreciate it very much :)

Perfect body, wow. I adore the contrast of orange against turquoise. They are such a loud combination, but even I actually had to force myself to take in the whole composition because you really do dominate the scene. Well done :)

Excellent! :clap: Yet again, as I have told you before, you manage to tap into the creative source of the artist whose work you are inspired by... and in turn, you are an inspiration to the rest of us :nod:
This is a particularly interesting take on things because the original subject is a young man and as you probably know, there's a bit of controversy as to Petrov-Vodkin's sexuality... the gender aspect, therefore, adds a unique perspective. Well done :thumbsup:
