Love is a very complex emotion. It has existed since the beginning of time, yet very little is understood about it. While people often mask their intentions with words in the name of love, it is the physical expression of that emotion which always bares the truth. Feelings such as passion, infatuation, and lust can all be rooted back to love, but are not tangible. People who try to define physical love usually identify it as a sexual or romantic act, but even these are not enough. Artists who represent love in their work rely on the visible movement in the imagery. Whether in an Impressionist painting from the 19th Century or on a Greek vase from the late 5th Century BCE, the images represent a story. But since they cannot tell us what love feels like, artists use the actions of their subjects to convey the emotion. This is when body language becomes the most important characteristic of a piece. The works in this gallery illustrate a gradual complexity on how the physical expression of love is the most clear and true form of “actions speaking louder than words”.
