Piotr Janas, Minotaurs, Installation view, Bortolami Gallery, New York, NY, 2013

Janas' paintings evoke an imagined world that spans the realms of nightmare and dream, interior and exterior, carnal and cerebral. Citing the Minotaur - one of the earliest instances of bestiality - Janas darkly and ironically refers to the vulnerability of the body and his contradictory feelings of pride and disgust about sexuality and masculinity.
