La sensualidad captada en una expresión by Malcom Liepke

Arte figurativo que nos muestra mujeres bonitas, es la carta de presentación de Malcolm Liepke. Inspirado en John Singer Sargent, Edgar Degas, Henri de Tolouse-Lautrec, Diego Velázquez, James McNeil Whistler y Édouard Vuillard este pintor americano nacido en Minneapolis, nos invita al vouyerismo para entrar en los momentos íntimos de placer e introspección de chicas bonitas.
Con sus retratos seductores, Malcolm Liepke se remonta a principios del siglo XX, cuando los valores victorianos se estaban desenredando para dar paso a una generación sexualmente liberada. Dictada en trazos sueltos, pinceladas expresivas, las obras tientan a los espectadores con los muslos expuestos en horas pico y sobre las medias, los labios carnosos y ojos penetrantes. Con el vestuario de época, Liepke hace de esta sensualidad sutil parecee aún más atrevida.



ENG: Liepke’s masterful use and knowledge of his chosen medium, is the culmination of a long and ongoing apprenticeship, studying aspects of painters he holds in high esteem. Compositional and tonal nods to the likes of Singer Sargent, Whistler and Degas, the patterns and textures of Vuillard and an ever- evolving palette of vibrant colours, result in a combination, which defines Liepke’s unique identity as a contemporary painter.
The beauty of Liepke’s paintings is arrestingly self-evident. Through his subjects, he delves into various realms of human nature. Sensuality captured in an expression, a passionate embrace, the celebration of womanhood and feminine wiles are predominant themes he deftly conveys. Above all though, Leipke’s work is concerned with exploring the engagement between subject and viewer. An alluring look can turn into a piercingly lustful stare, trapping the onlooker. Such a direct connection with the subject verges on awkward and discomforting, if only momentarily, before being permitted to relax in the enjoyment of the reciprocated gaze. In contrast, our voyeuristic tendencies are provoked by seemingly catching a glimpse of an intimate moment in time, captured like a still from a film your mother would not approve of.
