Drawing
Oil, Ink, acrylic & rice paper collage on paper 
Needs frame

In this series of paintings and drawings I was inspired by Ancient Rome busts.
Starting with the concept that it was expected and socially acceptable for a freeborn Roman man to want sex with both female and male partners, as long as he took the penetrative role. The morality of the behavior depended on the social standing of the partner, not gender per SE.
Both women and young men were considered normal objects of desire.
Many famous men of the best known and respected families where having same gender sexual orientation.
One of all was Julius Caesar a prominent member of the Gens Giulia and founder of the Julio-Claudian dynasty.
He felt a strong attraction to people of the same sex, his homosexuality, or bisexuality, was well attested by Cicero when he commented "the husband of all wives and the wife of all husbands."

I have been always fascinated by nature, the behavior of animals, the way that flowers and plants grow and how we are a big part of it, the subtle injection of ambiguity that blurs the gap between the ordinary and the fantastic. In my work I want to bring nature closer to the observer, to connect people with their roots and memories. Organic elements are essential as they show us, like in a fairy tale, the link between the subconscious mind and the actual world. This, besides having an apparent dark side, also embodies a sense of fragility and Vulnerability, which seems to be a consistent characteristic of my work. Delicate graphite lines, a subtle oil color palette, ink and rice paper all amalgamate to create layer after layer a particularly dreamy look that distinguishes my work. www.kareninafabrizzi.com
