Resin Sex Style retains the frenetic sexual theme of the earlier painting, while paring down the composition to relieve congestion and give the characters some room within the canvas. The work has a noticeably filmic quality, evoking the chronophotographic experiments of Eadweard Muybridge and the Cubist paintings depicting figures in motion by Marcel Duchamp that borrowed so cleverly from them. A slim, angular figure appears to be caught in a series of poses as he moves from a standing position at left to one kneeling at right. Midway through, in his most bodily depiction, he seems to be lost in a moment of regret, shame or intense feeling. Lokiec deliberately accentuates the two-dimensionality of the picture plane by pasting pages from his sketchbook arbitrarily to its surface, and laying down a series of decorative, abstract patterns with his paintbrush.
