It is not clear whether the models for The Kiss are Klimt himself and his muse and lover for years, Emilie Flöge -a great collaborator and inspiration for part of his work-. Unlike other works, this one escapes censorship and the male figure becomes the protagonist, acquiring a dominant role. It is one of his less explicit and more sensual works.
A Kiss in modern times
Is it possible to pay homage to Klimt's magnum opus without falling into clichés? I wanted to keep the sensuality without sacrificing the essence or the original motivation and vindication. After much thought, I decided that it was necessary to update the theme. Klimt's universe was feminized. The artist was controversial and a womanizer, but in a way he empowered women by making them protagonists without excuses, giving them sexual freedom. He fought against established censorship and morality.
Trying to adapt these motivations over time, I decided that the central theme of my tribute should be the vindication of sexual freedom against censorship and the most stagnant morality. For this reason, the protagonists of my version of the Kiss are two men, two people expressing their love in equality and in freedom. Long live free love!
