Five Pieces of Visual Art by Despy Boutris

Two naked people, exposing their breasts and vulvas, lie superimposed against an architectural diagram. Their heads are tilted back in ecstasy, obscuring their faces.
Two naked people curl into themselves, superimposed against an image of an eyeball. The person on the right is tilted upwards, exposing their anus and genitals.
Two naked people recline, faces obscured, breasts bared, superimposed against a classical painting.
Two naked loungers, lemon slices obscuring their genitals, smile invitingly up at you, surrounded by a field of yellow.
Two naked loungers, fruit obscuring their genitals, smile invitingly up at you, surrounded by a field of yellow and pink.
