â€śItâ€™s Not Milkâ€ť is a series of oil paintings by Ivan Alifan that examine sexuality and the modern gaze. His figures literally ooze with eroticism, their faces eager and serene as they receive the milk-white anointment. Some of his paintings involve dripping giants immersed in surreal landscapes. Alifan’s portraits of sensuality and excess provoke a range of emotional responses in his viewers, from attraction to unease. By confronting us with scenes of pleasure and secret intimacy, he seeks to destigmatize sex in art and foster bodily self-awareness.
