Dorothy Iannon, The Darling Duck, 2013. Favorite
Over the last 40 years, American-born, Berlin-based artist Dorothy Iannone has produced a vibrant and revealing body of work, expressing her feelings and experiences through painting, drawing, poetry and song. Iannone’s portrayals of male and female sexuality celebrate the joy of her most intimate relationships while subverting traditional gender stereotypes of dominance and control. Through graphic paintings, sculptures and video boxes her works depict partly-clothed and naked figures on bright psychedelic backgrounds of flora, mandalas and biomorphic patterns. Recalling classical Indian erotic art, Egyptian frescoes and Byzantine mosaics, Iannone’s intricate work communicates a personal narrative, passionate love affairs and lifetime pursuit of ‘ecstatic unity' through transcendence and spirituality.
