Pierre et Gilles Exhibit, "Heroes"
“Heroes” at Gallerie Daniel Templon, Paris, France through May 1st. *
A short break from my own work to that of my favorite artist couple in the Art World, Pierre et Gilles. The duo works by building elaborate tableau in their studio, posing friends and models, shooting the images, printing on canvas, and then painting into the photo. Each mixed media photo/painting is put in a frame tailored specifically to the finished product. This particular painting from the current show is “Achille,” the model, Staiv Gentis (2011).
