Bas’ paintings explore the codes of dandyism and its
subculture as a means to define sexual attraction. Bas’
paintings are small, frail, and sensuously delightful; through
their unassuming intimacy, they personify epic romance. Influence
by historical painting, Bas’ images contemporaneity,
their staginess, and immediate familiarity suggest the melodramatic
narratives of classic film. In Posing with Antler,
Bas paints a waif-like boy, flirtatiously hamming it up for
snap shot laughs. Placing the viewer in the position of an
unseen photographer, Bas sets a scene of predatory seduction.
