 Rob Hefferen - Protect Me From What I Want

The Original Art Shop are privileged to present the Love and Desire Collection by Rob Hefferan. An established and critically acclaimed figurative artist with a far reaching collector base. This body of work is an exceptional portrayal of duality; he has carefully crafted a world of light and shade, giving his audience both sides of every proverbial coin one could want or indeed imagine. Love and passion. Romance and lust. Sensual and sexual. Traditional and contemporary.
The balance between Hefferan’s two title themes, love and desire, is perfectly weighted. The pieces enveloped in the ‘Love’ leitmotif are softly lit, beautifully staged and speak to the viewer of Pre-Raphaelite ideals. The fabrics appear lushly swathed, the décor is ornate and the setting as opulent as one would expect for the beauty and grace of his subjects. Every texture is given great attention; Hefferan’s depiction of light and movement breathes great life and vibrancy into this array of beautifully engineered tableaus, courtesy of his refined brush technique. As such, it isn’t a far stretch to understand why each piece can take between 150 to 200 hours to complete.

‘Desire’ is a different world and a different time. Hefferan takes us by the hand and leads us away from the high vaulted ceilings, light airy rooms and decorous poses we have seen thus far, into a world far removed and altogether edgier. These scenes are decidedly reminiscent of sexual, rather than sensual, fantasy. They conjure up images of nocturnal Soho establishments, Sally Bowles’ 1930s Kit Kat Club, and the art of burlesque, as given new life in recent times by famous performer Dita Von Teese. Hefferan chose a prestigious members club in the heart of Mayfair as the backdrop of some of these pieces, lending an added layer of indulgence and decadence to the overall effect, as the viewer becomes the voyeur.
