About

Louis Vuitton XL Lips 50" x 50" x 2" inch Edition of 8 Printed on Fujiflex paper 1 inch Museum Acrylic face Mount + 1/8" Aluminum back mount Hand Polished Edges + Metal Linner on back 50 INCH DIAMETER LIPS series Love Impetuous Passion Sensuality Voluptuous pout or cupid’s bow-shaped, red velvet or purple plum, subtly sensitive or aggressively bold: lips are the greatest feature of the human body. The epitome of sensuality, they also define our personality. Whether used with assertiveness or shyness, we, human beings, all agree on an irrefutable common point: lips are the perfect cushion for love. Lipstick unites women. Whatever their background is, they carry their own femininity through it, seamlessly changing the mood with the stroke of its gloss. It conveys and enhances independence via expression of the self. It’s a powerful, striking symbol of female emancipation. Inspired by Pop Art, these compelling photographs demonstrate that popular imagery and luxury brands are indeed an integral part of the fine arts. Lipstick is as necessary for a woman’s purse as it is hanging on the wall. The 3D photographs, like the lips themselves, are born of voluptuousness and sensuality. They can be dramatic or subtle. This exhibition embraces the universality of all of our lips, celebrating them as the icon they are - no matter their shape, size, color, or current mood - and how important they are for women, fashion, and the arts as a whole. ABOUT THE ARTIST Internationally recognized photographer, Giuliano Bekor, holds a portfolio that includes work from the realms of fashion, beauty, celebrity, advertising, and fine art. Giuliano’s photography has been featured in top publications around the globe, and his client list includes an endless file of beauty industry leaders, advertising agencies, celebrities, producers, and artists. With 30 years in the industry, Giuliano has perfected his craft to an exceptional level of expertise. Composed of light, color, space and form, Giuliano brings ideas conceptualized in his own imagination into reality throughout his work. Currently living between New York and Los Angeles, Giuliano is often on the move traveling for work and inspiration. Always the restless visionary, he ceases to continually express his fresh and nuanced style. For Giuliano Bekor, a photograph is an image that comes into being consciously, composed of light, color, space and form. Like a painter, he sketches, refining ideas through pen and pencil well before the shutter clicks. A camera is strictly a means to an end, a way of making a palpable visual record of an idea that gestates in his mind, gains shape by his hand, and resolves through his eye as it peers through the lens. His subject is the human body, almost always nude. These images delve into the splendor of the body - how it can express the inner meaning of who we are. Limbs, torsos, muscles and bones are exposed as though carved out of a supple, glowing stone that flexes and twists. Many of these photographs feature subjects posed with the eyes obscured, the face covered. If we look closely, Bekor says, we can see that the body is as much a window into the soul as the eyes. This is a gallery of the soul etched into the forms we assume in the physical world. Through exaggerated contrast between light and dark, smooth and textured, vaporous and tactile, Giuliano deliberately filters the extraneous. The camera captures the image, but for Bekor each exposure is a transformation - of himself, his subjects, and us. He is digging into uneasy turf, fraught with tension: masculine/feminine, heroic/cowardly, shameless/shameful, eternal/fleeting. The intensity of detail, the fiercely exquisite perfection of the bodies themselves, the unflinching, scrupulous engagement of the lens, negates all pretense of politeness. Confronted, we are summoned to look. So we must. And we do. And we experience the beautiful human forms we inhabit and the silent, eloquent language they speak.
