Hi Fructose just posted this on the opening of Van Arno‘s solo show Tame Nor Sane this Saturday in the SG Project Space from 7-11 PM. Van Arno’s hyper real depictions of the human form are as classically Mannerist as they are plastically pornographic. Author Nastia Voynovskaya describes the figures as “nude women with voluptuous bodies partially covered by fetish costumes [who] find themselves battling death or conjuring Earth spirits. Van Arno’s deft hand captures their straining muscles and knitted brows in these exaggerated struggles.” We certainly enjoy this erotic twist on the classics!
Don’t forget to RSVP.
Tame Nor Sane, by Van Arno
