About this painting
An overtly sexual painting, this idea was conceived as a reaction to the paintings of the time about loss or loneliness. I decided to paint the opposite for the sake of variety and creativity.

An octopus attacks a lighthouse. The lighthouse, a phallic symbol of isolation and also a beacon, casting light over a sea of emotion. The slimy octopus has erotic sensual overtones, like any soft wet sticky creature, rippling and muscular.

Here the attack releases an angel. And angel of what? Something geometrical, mathematical, glorious and beautiful but yes almost divine. The rocks in the distance lean upon each other like a loving couple.
