Artist's description:

The painting "Artemis" is named after an ex-girlfriend. The painting is abstract and symbolises my subconscious feelings towards her. She was very sensual which you can probably tell from the forms and shapes I have used within the painting. I have tried to capture the essence of the woman and her sexual vitality. Her beauty and sensuality had a powerful influence over me at the time and I fell in love with her. She was Greek heredity which would explain the voluptuousness of her figure. The painting is part of a series and depicts my interpretation of women and the power they have over man due to their sensuality. There are yoni images within the paintings. These represent the power of woman over men as it seems to me heterosexual man's main subconscious or conscious motivations in life seem to be to bond with a member of the opposite sex.
I hope the viewer will feel moved by the painting and that it will cause an emotive response.
Carl’s painting technique is surreal and the paint is applied in layers. He gains greatest enjoyment when applying paint with painting apparatus (rather than brushes), as he savours the freedom and serendipity that can be obtained when using such implements. This results in the paintings having a sculptural element to them: as the paint juts out in places from the canvas, giving them a three dimensional quality. This painting is part of a series of paintings based on the Greek gods and goddesses, with contemporary reference which give insight into the nature of modern human relationships.
