Eddy Stevens’ Paintings
- Caroline Kurze
In his soulful, otherworldly paintings, Eddy Stevens creates a universe where intuition and emotion are dominate and female sensual power is ubiquitous.
In his vision, the woman, a heroine modeled after his wife Sophie, sheds her clothes, forging a stark connection with the natural world. In Stevens’ raw images, sexuality is a source of spiritual strength rather than shame. The domestic space of the house cannot contain the divinity of woman, and its walls crumble at her feet; she, like the horse, is free to roam infinite wildness.
