Alexander Kanevsky’s “Cloud” (2008, oil on wood, 122 x 91 cm) is a property of the Cyrus Company S.r.l.(Italy/US) www.AlexanderKanevsky.com

“…in “Cloud,” where a massive, muscular male torso plummets like that of Icarus from sky to sea, filling most of a large wood panel. Although decapitated at the chin by the lower right side of the composition, the partial figure culminates on the other end, where the groin would normally be, in a second head –– again partially severed by the top left edge of the panel! More fanciful than grotesque (despite the difficulty of finding adequate language to do proper justice to such an anatomical anomaly), like one of Odilon Redon’s giants or his Cyclops, it possesses its own inarguable visual logic.”
