The Photograph Art of Thorsten Brinckmann: “Serial Collector”

We have seen images of German-based Thorsten Brinkmann’s work in the past, but we hadn’t fully understood how big his body of work was. The element of old mastery style portraits is what initially makes the work familiar, but of course, what is going on in the photographs is something conceptual and not typical in the least.

The still-life portraits contain objects from Brinkmann’s collection, from which he calls himself a “serial collector.” A here is the kicker: Thorsten Brinkmann photographs himself in these scenes and costumes. And of course, the absence of the face is a powerful characteristic in all of these photographs.

Choi Xooang

(Oil on Resin)

Known for his unearthly but highly intricate human figures, South Korean artist Choi Xooang has been sculpting for the last 10 years. Following his most recent exhibition, The Blind for the Blind at the Galerie Albert Benamou in Paris, Choi Xooang : Distorted and haunting, and certainly not for the squeamish, above everything else, Choi Xooang’s work reveals his deep concern for the human condition in society – and how he feels that something needs to change. Although the viewer is both repulsed and fascinated by the gut-wrenching hyperrealist sculptures of human bodies, Xooang’s mastery of the art and eye for detail right down to the smallest vein, is remarkable and reminds of the intricate work of Ron Mueck. As well as being hyperrealist, Xooang’s work is also surrealist and is charged with existential questions. His freakish figurative sculptures are mutilated or abbreviated. Merging unexpectedly, flesh is sewn together with ribbons, heads are plunged together to make one, a head is replaced with that of a hound or an ostrich and fists are plunged into backs of heads Ultimately, people are silenced and held captive by their condition.

Raw and cold, the works portray a bleak reality of the multiple facets of human relations and contemporary psychology.  ”His sculptures that reveal mental maladies of contemporary people – lost; deficient; paranoid; and deprived of free will – and violence hidden beneath the rationality of society also explore ontological questions about human existence and identity,” reads the exhibition catalogue. However, despite the horror displayed in his work, the artist isn’t a pessimist, ”There will be a solution,” as he tells us.

 Christian Gaillard

 One cannot but admire the extravagant costumes worn by toreros, which echo the flamboyant style of 19th-century dandies and are meticulously embroidered using shiny golden and silver thread — thus earning them the name ‘suit of lights’ (or ‘traje de luces’ in Spanish).   in a detailed, almost photorealistic style. Influenced by the style of Spanish master Diego Velázquez, Gaillard’s subjects are placed against a dark background with their backs turned to the viewer, thus making their dazzling costumes the centre of attention.

Christian Gaillard’s impressive paintings are currently on display at the Connoisseur Art Gallery in Hong Kong, as part of the artist’s third solo exhibition in the city titled ‘De Luz’ (16-28 October, 2014)
