Le Fruit Défendu

Material: Egg tempera and oil on panel
Size: 33 x 90 cm

This very sensual nude celebrates the female beauty and power. The Forbidden Fruit refers to the creation story of humanity: Adam and Eve. The Forbidden Fruit painting mirrors the cultural and conditioned shame for nudity and moreover, the inequality women experience compared to men.
CONTEMPORARY DUTCH ARTIST AND INVENTOR FOSTERING EQUALITY BETWEEN PEOPLE ESPECIALLY BY SHOWING THE SENSUALITY, STRENGTH AND POWER OF WOMEN. "NUDE IS FOR ME THE ULTIMATE SYMBOL OF FREEDOM, POWER AND PURENESS. THAT'S WHY THIS IS MY SUBJECT FOR MY PHOTOGRAPHS AND PAINTINGS. IT IS AN UNPREDICTABLE JOURNEY ALONG ALL SIDES OF HUMANITY. SOMETIMES SOFT, SOMETIMES SWEET AND SOMETIMES SPICY, YET ALWAYS SENSUAL, ATTRACTIVE AND STRONG."
