  • The Death of the Ego artwork by Edwin IJpeij - art listed for sale on Artplode

About Artist:

Edwin (1969) is born, living and working near Maastricht. He is a contemporary Dutch artist and inventor.

 

Edwin's paintings and photographs show erotic, sensual, warm and seductive beauties that reveal stories that he wants to share.

 

His nudes represents the essence, without garment and make-up: just how you are. Exactly this he wants to tell you with his artworks: bringing you in motion to be your pure and beautiful self, your naked truth! For people, however, for women in special. 

 

All his artworks are different, however, they are always spicy and sensual. 

 

In his work, paintings and photographs of theatrical scenes, Edwin’s muses play an act of power, seduction and temptation. All acts together form a play where Edwin reveals stories.

 

Edwin masters both painting and photography as you can see back in the way he composes his artworks. He reveals the expression of the skin and he accents the female curves as a pleasant melody. His use of high-contrast, dramatic but beautiful light places his models in the spotlights. According to Edwin, this is the place that women deserve. By her attitude, her tender silky skin and her shapes, every woman has the intrinsic ability to pull her strings in her game of seducion and powerplay. It is his intention that his muses inspire you. Women can be fatally attractive, sexy but classy, dominant but allowing a dance with an appropiate partner, playful but elegant, mysterious but always in control.

 

Edwin paints preferably with tempera and oilpaint, accordingly to the Old Masters' techniques. For him, this is a practical and aesthetical choice, since these techniques depict the texture and colour of the skin the most realistic. For this reason, he makes his own tempera and oilpaint using genuine pigments. Because he holds a BSc in chemistry, he can purchase them to use them in his paintings.

 

His works were exhibited in Maastricht, Miami, Barcelona, London, Venice, Knokke and Amsterdam. Works of him are part of collections in Maastricht, Aix-en-Provence, Oxford, London, Genk and Sittard-Geleen. He has gallery representation by Maurice Knops Fine Art in Sittard-Geleen.

About Artwork:

This work is inspired by the painting David with the Head of Goliath by the Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio. Edwin took a theme the death of the ego, since our ego's are often the Goliaths in our own lives. They seem important and gigantic, however, when being aware of your own ego, creates a feeling of absolute freedom. This theme is pictured by the model who carries her own head, which is in reality obviously impossible. The head symbolises her mind, her ego. 

The  artwork is created by Edwin IJpeij, the model and the grime/makeup artist Annelies Zielman-van Oosterum.
