in the last few years Felipe has focused on the interpretation and exploration of the form through the use of his own body. however,  in this recent ongoing collection, Felipe for the first time invites unknown 'straight' men to create gentle charcoal drawings darkened with bold geometric lines of indian ink.

 

in these scenes where reality looks to occur only  inside empty rooms, the artist places male bodies as the main subject to interact and respond to their location. He feels inspired by the relationship between 'the queer artist' as the voyeur, and the straight model portraying the exhibitionist. 

unrestrained by the complexity of his usual more realistic,  shaded technique, the drawings reveal an experimental side of composition, whereby he imagines minimal walls and perspectives, free from the idea of an actual place. the semi nude subjects, either one or two, feel almost aroused by feeling exposed, as if they want to be treated as escorts or models posing in a glass box, both of which are for gay men to admire.  

The artist has chosen to keep the identity anonymous in each work, and with this comes an exchange of power that you can feel translated in the works. Specially as they start to be purchased by primarily gay men or women, their nude body is almost paraded and abused through gazes of the public eye.
