With “Portrait of Desire”, Segio serves us with a whimsical, naughty and engaging scene, where human beings gather to indulge their harmless, hedonistic pleasures. A man with all the focus of an old world craftsman focuses on the female form by glorifying its perfection with flora.

The scene delights the viewer with its exquisite rendering of physical detail but above all the all-pervasive softness of the light, the carpet, the curtains, and the overall atmosphere, down to the fluffy cat. A softness, gentleness with a firm core, for it is tangibly rooted in confidence, self-acceptance and tolerance.

Most of the subjects present the illusion of being primarily self-focused for the duration of these entertaining engagements. But what might the cat think?


We use the highest possible, colour tested printing process in the IBEX ArtLab. The Master-Giclées are overseen by the artists themselves to ensure that they are exactly as the artists want them. All used materials for the Master-Giclées are acid-free, so they will not turn yellow or go brittle. We use archival pigment inks which have the longest lifespan of any ink currently known.

At IBEX, we believe in providing the highest quality Master-Giclées to match the high quality of our artists. All pieces are produced in our own print, varnishing and framing facilities in Germany. From start to finish each work of art is handled personally by a master printer with more than 20 years of experience in the fine arts.
