"The Yin is the force of women. Receptive, obedient, slow to rise to the boil and slow to cool.

 

In men, the Yang force is like fire"

 

Yukimura Haruki, Japanese photographer and filmmaker, master of kinbaku

Fine art gallery Triptych: Global Arts Workshop presents a solo exhibition of the erotic art of Tetiana Cherevan. Brave and exuberant, the artworks of the Ukrainian artists have secured a following among art lovers in Ukraine, Russia, the UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Canada, and the US. Tetiana Cherevan’s work researches the philosophy of personal relationships, and doesn’t shy away from such subjects as shibari, the Japanese art of erotic bondage. The female figures that emerge through the decorative space of the canvases, interacting harmoniously with its flora and fauna, are at once a source of aesthetic pleasure and a symbol of sensuality, the boundlessness of potential pleasure, passion, and love. The exhibition includes painting and graphic works of the last few years, demonstrating the charismatic artist’s journey:

 

“Life flows like water, extinguishing fire and moving past land. Life is a woman’s powerful word. Life carries in it pain, joy, disappointment, hope, love... it’s easy to bind her in the fetters of one’s thoughts, but much harded to allow oneself to understand the sesne of freedom at any given moment, even a difficult one.

 

The ropes of shibari are the symbol of the fetters and the freedoms of circumstance. The water of life is expressed through the beautiful women in the canvases. Three multi-panel works – three different girls. The first is bound tightly, she wants to be exactly where she is, and she can hardly breathe from the pleasure. The second one has the head of a blue bird. She holds in her hands and beak a rope, tightly bound but free, free to control her own freedom. She has a freedom of choice. The sketches aim to capture moments which occur in the here and now. A process that is measured, thorough, good. To create moments of beauty which will only remain in the memory.”
