Diminishing Masculinity Lena Nechet

This is multiplied by seven portrait of one aging man. It had originated from several sessions of life drawing of a nude male model. Many thanks to Mark for posing.

This composition symbolizes the phase in life after a mid-life crisis, when the reduction of hormones neither change nor quiet the man's masculine mind. 

This guy is brought out of balance by a new erotic attraction, almost to the point of the subject's world turning upside-down, because his body is not in tune with his desire. His new ways of thinking and the found serenity seem disconnected and easily flipped.
