"When you look at Eolake Stobblehouse’s art, you discover originality influenced by distinct modern artists and artistic traditions. To offer two examples: in the painting of a crouched woman facing the viewers, the nude figure becomes a study of colors and shapes. Much like Picasso’s paintings during his Marie-Thérese Walter phase, each of the shapes—the circularity of the breasts, the sausage-like brownish color and shape of one of her arms, the phallic shape of her leg, alludes to a fragmentary eroticism. The image as a whole isn’t erotic. But taken in isolation each part appears so sensual that it’s almost eatable. The colors draw our attention to the eroticism of this painting much as its shapes. The darkness of the hair contrasts sharply with the redness of (both sets of) lips, to emphasize, once again, the woman’s sexuality."
