Intimacy is a simple gesture: a hand cupping a receiving face, an arm draped over a welcoming back. It is these moments that artist and curator Thion investigates. Bold simplicity and vibrant forms provide new avenues to uncover human nuances.
He explains: “By placing these vibrant forms in a void we are immediately interpolated by them, but suddenly our focus is narrowed further still to the very loci of these gestures of intimacy. There is no where else to look.”
