A Voyeuristic experience of sorts

“The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.”– Marcel Duchamp

ART LOVERS is a series of paintings looking at the relationship between spectators and the objects of their gaze. Through the spectator we are revisiting voyeurism and eroticism throughout art history. In this series, it is the spectator who makes us discover paradigm shifts in the model / artist / spectator triangle. If Art can serve as the self-consciousness of our culture and distance us from ideology, art lovers make us face up to our own voyeuristic nature.
