I choose this title because I like to use poetic titles that give a subtle reference to the image. I created this to reflect the party life, pointing to high society and images of beauty from ancient cultures. There are also references to slavery and luxury.
Artist Statement Life is bizarre. God is real. Love is King. I agree with Matisse when he said, “all art is religious.” My goal is to create remarkable art and continue in the dialog with the great masters of art history. My work explores the themes of death, sex and heaven. I paint on canvas with oil paint, which is a beautiful and traditional medium that stands the test of time. At times I explore working with acrylic and spray paint for diverse textures and techniques. I am interested in philosophy, color and precision. My goal is to exhibit my work in museums with the intent to engage people with the power of creativity, and to help them believe that everyone has a genius that needs to blossom. -Aaron Lee
