The sensual woman in Senju´s painting “Seijo” appears as an empress or perhaps a godess. The title is a Japanese word which translates to “Holy Woman”. For us humans, our sexuality is at the core of our self identification and for Senju the most importamt part of sexuality is intimacy. Without this key to unlock what is beyond, Senju feels that sex becomes mereley a grinding together of skeletons. And as male culture has developed into a reality lacking in the courage to show emotions beyond anger and agression, men should look to the feminine to find guidance. This is an image of worship. Not of the power of the cock but of the power of all that should be considered Holy to us. Empathy, love and intimacy.
