SENSUALITY 1: Pain and Pleasure

“They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity.” Ephesians 4:19

Women body are beautiful and commonly been used on western medias to sell any product; partially clothed or with no clothes at all and in Middle East women are forbidden to show too much of their body in public. Ironically Belly dance, which is a form of an entertainment for men in the Middle East with women partially dressed dance erotically for men’s pleasure. Sexual abuses against women are even more common in the Middle East than in the West.

In recent years, news about sexual abuse against women was so common. From the western world to the Far East, women have been subjected to horrific sexual abuse. Men of depraved minds from all classes from Presidents to law makers, rich and poor have been accused of indulging in molestation of women. This is what influenced this painting – SENSUALITY 1: Pain and Pleasure.

O. Yemi uses Roses and thorns to illustrate pain and pleasure of sensuality in which rose is for pleasure and thorns are the pains of sexual abuse. O. Yemi uses Rose for head and rose bulbs for the breasts of the figure. Steams of thorns are creatively woven together to form the figure of a woman seated wearing red-laced under pant and red high-hill shoes.

Most of his recent paintings were influenced by political and social upheaval of our world today and the works of the Renaissance artists. He does not like artworks just for decoration but to evoke feelings.
 He uses his works to speak passionately about the issues that touch his heart. Exchange of missiles of words between President Donald Trump of America and Kim Jong Hu of North Korea provoked him to do the painting “The Chickens’ Fight.” He uses my painting “African’t” to speak about the exploitation of African nations. The Painting depicts paradoxical poverty and the riches of Africa. “The Fishers of Men” is about the horror of refugees drowning in Mediterranean Sea.
He desires his portrait paintings to be uniquely creative. He likes to use the portrait paintings to tell the stories about his subjects as he did with the portrait of Professor Wole Soyinka, 1986 Nobel Prize Winner in Literature in painting “SOYINKA: A Literary Icon” in which he used books and flowing letters to create the portrait
 Life is roses and thorns; sometimes it emanates sweet aroma of pleasantness and sometimes it pricks and causes pains. O. Yemi adopts Roses and Thorns to speak about the facts of life in some of my paintings. My paintings, “The Bleeding Roses”, “Domestic Abuse” and Sensuality1: Pain and Pleasure are few of his paintings in my Roses and Thorns series; in which the main objects of the paintings are roses and stems woven into human figures.
In recent years, he has used his paintings to speak about the glooms and dooms of the world around us. In spite of the despondency and challenges part of life, there is a rosy side of life as well. In his painting “The Rosy Seasons of Life” he chose an optimistic look of life to celebrate rosy side of life
