Zornian Women by Kian @ Nitroglobus Annex
Kian first attempt at Second Life® photography took place half a decade ago. He needed some time to find his own unique touch: the faded, grainy images, usually with the artist himself as the willing subject, creating a distance between the spectator and himself. The pictures often have a quirk to them with Kian as a king slaying his queen on a chess board, on summer holiday with a sex doll or dressed as the Easter bunny on a canola field.
A few years later, he started exploring landscape photography, but added heavy post-processing to turn the images into impressionistic oil paintings. Falling in love with the technique, he wanted to take it one step further.
For the Zornian Women exhibition Kian used for the first time female models as the main subject.
Inspired by the painter Anders Zorn, Kian captured the female body in light and shadows, with contrasting areas of very basic colors. Like in the paintings of the famous Swedish impressionist, the spectator's eye is drawn to the subject when the surroundings disappear into the magical Northern lights.
The opening party @ The Annex of Nitroglobus is Tuesday 2 May, 12 PM SLT (is 21 hrs Paris time)
