Another World (Study #7)

The pieces in this collection are a departure from earlier work by the artist fusing nature, the female form and religious and spiritual motifs of torment. These are aliens with a strange beauty from another world. Their distant, cold gaze looks beyond our world. In their chilling presence, the emptiness of the universe is striking. At the same time, viewing these figures together in one room, there is the sense of a community and a generation – witness the Mother and child Study – and some comfort can be tqken from companionship, no matter how chilling. Study #7 is a late study in the series. The focus is on the waist and Lupino offers a more voluptuous figure, a departure form stark aloofness of the earlier figures. Here, there is no hint in a facial expression so we are drawn to the erotic qualities of the naked female form with its full buttocks and shapely lines.
