Declaration of Love (the Dream series)
Painting, 11 x (100 x 80 cm), 1 x (102 x 122 cm).
Materials: oil, canvas
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0429_01-12).
12 paintings from Maslov's Dream series, donated by his heirs after Maslov's death and brought to M HKA by Elena Vorobyeva & Viktor Vorobyev. All paintings depict the head of a sleeping figure, vaguely smiling, as we witness his dreams and nightmares. Some are idyllic, some are terrifying, many are erotically charged. Painted during a timespan of almost 20 years, the series forms an imaginative and colorful insight into Maslov's innermost desires and fears. On the youngest painting, from 2000, we see a white male and a black female in intimate contact - a reference to Maslov's mythical 'affair' with singer Whitney Houston?
