  • The Forbidden Fruit 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:

Tempera and oilpaint on marouflated panel.

This work is an unique piece of art and from Edwin's Home Jewelry(r) Collection.

This life-size hyperrealistic painting has the title: Le Fruit Défendu, which means in English The Forbidden Fruit. This very sensual nude celebrates the female beauty and power.

The painting is about how we currently look at women and nudity. The Forbidden Fruit painting mirrors this cultural and conditioned shame for nudity and moreover, the inequity how women are treated compared to men. 

The Forbidden Fruit refers to the creation story of humanity: Adam and Eve. God created Adam, and from Adam's rib Eve. He told them to eat all fruits from Paradise except that of the tree of good and bad. Eve was tempted by a snake, in Christian symbolism, the devil, to eat the forbidden fruit. Eve was tempted and she tempted Adam to eat it too. They ate the forbidden fruit and they became aware of their nudity. And from that moment they felt SHAME.

Shame is a fear. Nudity is just showing up without clothes. Just in your fabulous skin, the most outside part of who you really are. Extrapolating this to the shame for nudity may arise the questions: why to feel shame for who you are? Why to feel shame for purity and vulnerability? Edwin has a clear idea on the answers of these questions, however, Edwin is more interested in your answers about these questions.

Edwin is also available for commissions, and can be completely tailored to your wishes. Please contact the artist for more information.

In this artwork, Edwin used self-made paint made from traditional, genuine pigments to paint her skin. Also the panel is completely hand-prepared: the Belgian linen is glued on the multilayered wood and grounded with 12 layers of traditional gesso and sanded between layers to make a very smooth panel. Then he starts to paint with tempera paint and via a secret procedure to oilpaint.
