“Rest in Peace, Francis Lapointe (aka Frank Wolf) who committed suicide on Nov. 25th 2013. He was an exquisite model, loved to cosplay and was bullied for cross dressing and simply being who he was and doing what he loved to do. I wish he could’ve listened to every single person who admired him and loved him. Let this influence you to love yourself for who you are, not what society thinks or what others think. Influence others that they are beautiful inside and out and that suicide is NEVER the answer.”

so, you think that art, truth, and sex/intimacy are deeply connected? is this what you're exploring in your art, or is it not a major theme in your works? do you know of any other artists who have worked toward uncovering where/how/why these things intertwine?

That’s what the nude genre is about and why it was and remain a main theme in art. You get to see a person in it’s most simple setup, straight to the core content, to his/her being. There’s intimacy and truth in this.

As for sex, even though it’s not clearly stated, it’s here too. That’s why some nudes have been so controversial.

Here are some examples to illustrate :

- Le Caravage, who was considered as a pedophile for painting this.

There had been already some naked children painted, but he did it with such realism / honesty that it became disturbing. That would be an example where all truth, sex and intimacy met.

- “L’origine du monde” de Courbet

- Klimt

As for contemporary artists working with new angles on those subjects, I’m thinking Cecily Brown, Philippe Pasqua or Jenny Saville…

- Ceciliy Brown

- Philippe Pasqua

Those are the works that speaks to me and try to follow.
