In his paintings Jean-Pierre Ceytaire demonstrates impressive and varied technique. He often distorts human figures and objects, more in the interests of humour and to make an important point about existence and relationship rather than outright caricature. Many of his works include an overtly erotic element reminiscent of Pierre Klossowski and the later Surrealists, whose work Ceytaire admires and acknowledges.
Here we have a wide variety of themes and techniques – the religious in several interpretations of Adam and Eve, the mythological with princes and princesses, and several bas relief panels of intertwined limbs and genitals. Again sexual themes abound, including several tender and intimate scenes involving torn black tights.
