Temptation and abstraction
An abstraction of temptation is not easy to paint. Fortunately, humanity already has a powerful metaphor in that area; the snake and the apple. I gratefully made use of it in this image. I am not ashamed of that, because great artists such as Albrecht Dürer and Titian preceded me in this. Just take a look at the Prado in Madrid. My image is different from theirs. It is not too late here. The snake coils around the naked body of a young woman, but she has not yet taken a bite. Will she do it?
Abstraction in temptation
The abstract figures in the scene are perhaps even more exciting than the snake and the woman. It is not clear which side they are on. They may save Eve, but they may as well be accomplices of the snake. Based on the image, the viewer can give free rein to his own expectations and interpretations.
