Art Opportunities Monthly Gallery Presents:

Susan Hensel

Susan Hensel in collaboration with John Hensel
Erotica Aquatica: Specimens is part of the Eros and Thanatos series of works.

The artwork in the Eros and Thanatos series is elemental, like the first handprints on the cave walls. The images are beautiful: oval, floral, undersea, vulvar: evocative of birth, life, pleasure.

The artwork is a consideration of beauty while still acknowledging pain and brokenness.  Death will always arrive for each and every one of us.  It is the subtext of all that we do and the source of the rapturous awareness of the divine, the gorgeous, the beautiful.

Beginning with instinct and sensory data, ending in nothingness, with beauty and pain in between.
