Francesca Woodman

28 12 2014

Francesca Woodman’s photographs have an awful intimacy about them. As if you’d been let in to see something… dreadful. It is a storyline. About pain. Reminds me of some of John Lennon’s music on The Plastic Ono Band.

Francesca Woodman (April 3, 1958 – January 19, 1981) was an American photographer best known for her black and white pictures featuring herself and female models. Many of her photographs show young women who are nude, blurred (due to movement and long exposure times), merging with their surroundings, or whose faces are obscured. Her work continues to be the subject of much critical acclaim and attention, years after she killed herself at the age of 22

I find Kunkle’s work interesting mostly because of the gilding. Gold or copper, I am not sure. It is mesmerizing. The paintings themselves leave me a little confused. I’m not sure what any of them are about. If  you watch the video you can get a feel of his opening show. Seems like he sells very well.

One of the founders of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism. He seems to be a very interesting fellow. A wonderful dinner companion.
