gameovercolourful:

These figurative human and equine sculptures are by a trio of Beijing-based artists who go by the name Unmask Group. Liu Zhan, Kuang Jun and Tan Tianwei met while at the Central Academy of Fine Arts and have been producing sculptural work together since 2001. These seemingly incomplete stainless steel works show figures in a state of dissolution or perhaps just the opposite, emergence. Regardless, the delicate lines and smooth curves left by the absence of materials make them appear almost sensual. These particular pieces were on display at H.T. Gallery through last month. (via my modern met, art source)

artphotocollector:

“Perhaps the reason why Balthus dared to paint the limbs of a young girl was that he was attempting to provoke narrow-minded 20th century notions of eroticism. And so in this photographic series the dual presence of innocence and eroticism points to the objectification of 20th century values, which is itself an important part of the work.” — Hisaji Hara


The Japanese photographer Hisaji Hara’s photographs are reminders of the past with a modern interpretation. By using Balthus’s paintings as inspiration and avoiding any use of digital manipulation, he meticulously constructs his images in camera.  Multiple exposures, smoke machines, cinematic lighting, a vintage interior—all work to create a painterly atmosphere.  These photographs, with their reinterpretations of Balthus’s paintings, challenge us to rethink the relationship between subject and viewer, including our notions of innocence and propriety.

The first European solo show of Hisaji Hara’s work ends this month at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London.  And for a thoughtful exploration of the exhibit, check out Sean O’Hagan’s review in the Guardian.  —Lane Nevares
