To feel love is not enough to be gospel or give lessons of good behavior, love implies eroticism, so that it is not only a healthy friendship, we must be touched by those sensory vibrations that awaken the morbidity of our most hormonal instincts. The evidence of the most direct pleasure is associated with that impression of calm and tranquility, in the perpetual ascent towards debauchery, effervescence, and noise.
"Stereotypes", the creative period from 2004 to 2011, by the artist Yunia Lores, explores her frenetic desire and her suggestive provocation of lust, in a series of works executed in the style of the greatest Baroque masters, with and excellent technique, and mastery in the creation of compositions, lights and shadows. The human figure is used as an exponent of the temple that offers the most sacred and profane rituals, in complacency, and the exploration of the most mysterious senses, which surround our truths, in privacy, where we reveal ourselves with greater sincerity, where the male and female bodies are the protagonists of that story that we almost never tell, not even in confession, and all under a background of half-light, or idyllic setting, to create more intimate scenes, and be more coherent in the dialogue with the viewer.
It is time to discover the veils, and be in harmony with the body, in the perverse delight of the most carnal act, forgetting conventions, and old social standards, to be original sometime, in ways that separate us from the apes, when passion and reason take hands, in their agitated dance, by orgasmic ecstasy.
Yunia Lores is originally from the ultramarine island of Cuba, an insular woman, attached to the sea, so fresh and spontaneous are her brushstrokes on the canvas, which are reminiscent of wetlands and sea beds, illuminated at mid-morning by the Caribbean sun, where she used to immerse her body, like an exalted siren who did not surrender in her irreverence and transgression, to discern the limits of reason.
