New Work & Award Winner: Beau

Like with numerous other species, are males actually the more beautiful sex? Are men peacocks? Despite the fact that our society usually celebrates the aesthetics of the female form over the male, why is it the norm that women wear makeup and perform a myriad of other rituals to look prettier?  If men did the same would they be considered equally beautiful or maybe they don’t because it is just not necessary.  It was this question that lead me to a series of works I’m calling Natural Beauties.  It also opened up the fun idea of very masculine looking men doing typically feminine things.

My first Natural Beauty is “Beau”.

The original is on consigment at the Lyman-Eyer Gallery. While available for purchase, it will remain with the gallery through the end of my upcoming show, the Breathtaking Blue, this July. In addition to the original, limited edition Gallery and Studio prints as well as open edition Portfolio prints are available for purchase on my website: www.breyette.com. The Day of Issue Price only lasts through March 11th at midnight. 

….and “Beau” was selected yesterday by the Erotic Signature jurors as the winner in the Fine Art category in their 3rd annual worldwide competition.

It will appear in the “The World’s Greatest Erotic Art of Today Vol. 3” alongside the other category winners, and the top 200 selected entries.  Two of my other recent works, “Dream of the Dolphin” and “Farmhand” were among the top 200 and will also be published in the book.

Congratulations to my friend fellow artist Marc DeBauch and everyone else who won a place in the book.

Congratulations on the new painting - an interesting theme, and a beautiful young man. For me, the male form is best absolutely plain; unadorned and undecorated. A great piece of work.
