The sweetest smile by Jeremy Holton

The sweetest smile by Jeremy Holton

Title: The sweetest smile

Desc: My intention in painting this was to contrast the pattern and the flesh. As I worked on it I discovered something else about it. The model (my wife) was completely oblivious to the sexuality of the pose and there was a beautiful fresh innocence to the painting.

When I tried to exhibit it I discovered something ugly. The local arts centre rejected it on the grounds that its was "pornographic". This possibility had honestly never occurred to me, sexy yes but pornographic!

It created quite a controversy here in Western Australia but a poll showed that 3 out of every 4 people thought it was NOT "pornographic". What do you think?

Media: oil

Size: 77 by 56 cms unframed

Genre: nude

Price Range: Important $501-$5,000
