Vermillion

2007 - 2008

David Boskovich’s series of paintings unfolds a biographic journey, which revolves around the woman's womb. The image of the womb acts as a formal and thematic starting point for the paintings, which deal with male and female identity, with birth and rediscovery, with infertility and pain, with the idea of love and processes of maturity and aging. The red-orange vermillion pigment, which is dominant in the works, dictates a surrealistic and alienated atmosphere. This atmosphere joins and intensifies the preoccupation with sexuality, dreams and fantasy, as part of the definition of the self that emerges out of the entire series.
