Lebanese artist Huguette Caland’s exuberant and erotically charged paintings challenge traditional conventions of beauty and desire. The female physique is a recurrent motif in her work, often painted like landscapes with voids and mountain-like forms.

Shifting between figuration and abstraction, large, colourful canvasses and detailed drawings from the 1970s and 1980s explore the delicate balance between the suggestive and the explicit.
