Place in the Sun

“Sexual themes are frequently taboo in many cultures.  I painted the lines to flow from figure to figure.  Symbolically, they reveal that whatever the method for self-gratification, the arc often runs from fulfillment to fear of discovery.  Only when that arc is broken can we each seek our own place in the sun.”  – Virgil Ortiz
