In this new Top 5 of Suggestions and Fragments. Incomplete bodies, we bring you five artists who play in their work with the forms of the human body. Hand in hand with these body fragments, depth and abstraction, what the artists suggest goes beyond what is shown in their photographs, and that end up being poetic series that try to captivate each of their captures with a subliminal beauty.
The first point of our Top 5 of Suggestions and Fragments. Incomplete bodies, we bring you the photographic project of Maria Baoli, “Kaleidoscopic”. The key of the artist is to play with the duality of two opposite spaces, which are connected through the pure geometry of a triangular mirror.
Next, we show you the work of the incredible New York based photographer based Patricia Voulgaris. Her vision of the human body makes it take on a new meaning, with the exquisite and minimalist series ‘Hidden in plain sight’. For this, Voulgaris plays with textures, materials and different forms to create different volumes, spaces, including parts of the human anatomy.
Continuing with our Top 5 of Suggestions and Fragments. Incomplete bodies, we show you the work of the photographer Cherine Fahd. In her series ‘Camouflage’ she presents us a series of self-portraits made in 2013, in which she camouflages the human anatomy after colored plates. The game is in that they only allow to see small parts of the same through slots and perforations, managing to transport the spectator to a planimetric universe interrupted by small signs of life.
In the particular case of Danny NG, he is an artist who shows absolute control over shapes, colors and the most minimalist composition. The white color floods each snapshot, and acquires importance with the high contrast elements in strategic points that articulate and balance the compositions. The postures and the gestures of the bodies make them dehumanize and become a formal resource of contrast with the architectures that it portrays.
To finish with our Top 5 of Suggestions and Fragments. Incomplete bodies, we show you the Athenian Sotiris Bougas. In his photographs, Bougas does not try to look for a scenario that represents simplicity but finds it in any aspect and object of everyday life. In this way, human figures and body parts without references are recurrent in his work. With these resources, he manages to dehumanize both architectures and objects or people; they are represented stripped of a context to get to see the small details that we do not normally look at.
