1995

About the Item

All prints are limited edition. Available in multiple sizes. High-end framing on request. All prints are done and signed by the artist. The collector receives an additional certificate of authenticity from the gallery. Nigel Parry has had some of the biggest names of pop culture in front of his lens, so this abstract portrait of the successful British artist Jenny Saville comes as no surprise. The painter is portrayed topless and covered in paint whilst hugging herself. She is barely recognizable as she looks like the subjects of her own paintings. Her gaze, seemingly looking through the camera, captivates the viewer's glance. Parry manages to not only capture the artist's appearance in this portrait but also the essence of her art. Jenny Saville is known for her figurative paintings. Her work often explores themes related to the female body, identity, and the concept of beauty. One of her notable series includes paintings of nude figures, often characterized by their fleshy and corporeal qualities. Her approach involves a raw and visceral portrayal of the human form, challenging conventional notions of beauty and confronting the viewer with the physicality of the body. Leonardo DiCaprio spilling a glass of fine whiskey directly at the viewer or Bill Clinton tilting his head with a look of presidential gravity – Nigel Parry’s portraits of celebrities and influential figures always show more than their image. A regular at high-profile magazines, such as The New York Times Magazine or Vanity Fair, Parry manages the impossible by making star shootings appear candid. Recently, Parry has ventured into landscape photography. Bordering on the impressionistic, his tranquil meditations on nature are as captivating as his portraits.

    All prints are limited edition. Available in multiple sizes. High-end framing on request. All prints are done and signed by the artist. The collector receives an additional certificate of authenticity from the gallery. Argentini’s work is characterized by an underlying fantasy vision. His women are untouchable and alien, inhabitants of mysterious spheres, while at the same time radiating a confident physicality. Although Argentini’s style is quite unmistakable, he loves diversity and variety and repeatedly finds novel ways of communicating his visual fantasies. ‘Tove Playing with Her Shoe’ is a cinematic piece. The Model is sitting in a hallway. She is wearing a short black dress...

  • Waiting, Silver Gelatin Black and White Nude Photography
    By Savannah Spirit
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    Savannah Spirit Waiting Silver gelatin on Ilford multigrade paper, signed, edition of 5 Scroll for more on the artist and this series and an excerpt from the recent monograph, The Archive #6: Savannah Spirit, published by Quiet Lunch: "When I first saw Savannah Spirit’s early nudes, I felt immediately struck by their power and awareness. Of course, they were traditionally beautiful, with classical lighting and shadows from Venetian blinds. Some of them were sexy, in the way bodies are sexy. But they weren’t sexualized. Looking at them, I felt powerful. I felt good. They depicted the body of an adult woman viewing herself with love. I’ve been devoted to them ever since. To me, these portraits invoke the power of a landscape. The way the light rolls over the body evokes the body’s connection with the earth, with sunrise and its long deep shadows. The patterns of darkness can break the figure into geometry, creating a distance between the viewer and the image, as in End of An Era and Staying Abreast. Yet others, like Resist and Be The Woman You Needed When You Were Younger, create direct address, and sometimes empathy. Sometimes, the viewer takes the vantage point of the artist, and the piece becomes a further study in introspection. The titles, like The Bottom Line and Read Between the Lines, often invoke idioms, figures of speech, or stereotypes that themselves point back to the culture that produced them. As conceptual components, they are both playful and political, which, when juxtaposed against image to elicit a mood or reaction. For me, it’s different every time. I am often pricked to discover how the vernacular of Hollywood capitalism, juxtaposed to a powerful, nude self-portrait of a woman, almost always feels a bit surprising–as if I wasn’t expecting her to be there. Recent works, like Network, use both shadow and mirror to create a doubled image, the artist and her reflection, further suggesting the sense of a dialogue with the self. The two bodies are not a mirror image, though seen in a mirror: a conversation between two sides of oneself, rather than a literal twinning. Over the past decade, as this series took on greater and deeper life, Savannah and I have had countless wonderful discussions about women, bodies and art. As a former artist’s model, early in her career, she participated in the form of power that was available to her: that of the quieted muse. She knew she was being objectified, she recalls, but at least she was included in the club. I instantly recognized that message. She was still creating her own work, though, and one day, she realized she’d had enough of seeing herself through someone else’s lens. She turned the camera on herself, and began to take a very different kind of picture. During the pandemic, the feeling of being alone with oneself can sometimes feel overwhelming. These recent pieces reflect that agitation of the dialogue alone, the being with oneself, seeking connection..." - Katie Peyton Hofstadter Classic black and white silver gelatin print, signed by the artist Savannah Spirit. This is a self portrait of the artist. Categorize between self-portrait, contemporary feminism, take back control, I am my own muse, my body my choice...
