Gallery Cafe Savannah
presents:
Theology and Erotic Nudity Without Context
Art by Ricardo Gomes

Opening Tuesday, May 11, 8:00 PM

Erotica, nudity, religious themes, fallen angels and biblical characters. The guiding principle of the work of Ricardo Gomes is the male figure, the primary object of his gaze. But the queer approach, reinforced by the influence of the underground, argues that there are sex roles essential or biologically inscribed in human nature.

The vision is brought to heteronormative representations and Appointing provocative homoerotic and fetishistic. The technique full of chiaroscuro and realism of pictures create an atmosphere of libido, which is reinforced in the assembly.

Ricardo Gomes, born in Taguatinga is self-taught artist. In 2009 he had a retrospective exhibition of his gay work (Queer Remixed).

According to Hugh Smith, the exhibition curator, Ricardo is identified with a transgressive posture and defense of the classifications and standards. In a queer approach, reinforced by the influence of underground, argues that there are sex roles essential or biologically inscribed in human nature. The vision is caused with heteronormative representations and Appointing provocative theme and fetish and homoafetivas.

The men he shows us exude masculinity but are quiet, unarmed. A hay to harden, but without ever losing her tenderness, says Hugo.

NAKED MEN
“I almost never draw a completely naked man. He has to have at least a pair of boots or something on. To me, a fully dressed man is more erotic than a naked one. A naked man is, of course beautiful, but dress him in black leather or a uniform — ah, then he is more than beautiful, then he is sexy!”
