The second relevant aspect of the experience concerns the kind of representations the images offer. 9 To summarize the result of a long analysis of their painterly mode as it clashes with their mise-en-scène, these two paintings are totally illusionistic in their texture yet totally artificial in their figurativity.

In the Peter the light comes from somewhere at the left, in front of the picture plane. Once attracted, you follow it to step inside. In the Paul the light comes from somewhere to the right, behind the picture plane. It leaves the back of Paul’s head in the dark, emphasizing the skin of his chest and the inside of his arms, as well as the large flank of the horse and the balding forehead of the older man holding the horse. This man is also afflicted by blindness. Paul is lying with his legs spread open, his arms and hands stretched out to receive whatever it is the light brings.

In a sense that is not confined to identity politics, this art is both theological and homosexual.

Yet the utter physicality, the sense-based involvement of the body, is just as keen. The body, in his work, is made drastically present, but not as an actor on the stage. The body that cannot escape, does not wish to escape, the touch of this painting, is that of the viewer.
