You think the traditional ‘Nude’ is a dying art…………….
Here, looks again, ‘Bodily Dialogue’, paintings and drawings by Peter So is to challenge that!
This emerging artist, although established with an illustrative background is turning the ‘Nude’ upside down and carrying it to the extreme.Years of life drawing experiences he is fusing the traditional with the new, exploring pictorial dynamics with composition, background, colours, lines, densities of tones, to challenge the norm.
The artist had developed, and evolved a unique style of drawing, that transformed the two dimensional image onto a two dimensional plane to appeared three dimensional., as critics has referred to his drawings as ‘sculptural’, a feat which would have rendered Picasso’s ‘affirmation of the two dimensional plane’ pointless.
A surrealist, heavily influence by Freud and Dali, Peter is searching and connecting with his subconscious and interpreting his own images, and becoming aware of his own duality; a discovery that slightly surprised himself.
