Blown von Julia Randall

Die New Yorker Künstlerin Julia Randall hat in ihrer Serie Blown, 2011- 2012 wunderbar organische Bilder von aufgeblasenen Kaugummis produziert, die ich euch auf keinen Fall vorenthalten will. Die hyperrealistisch gezeichneten Luftblasen entfalten mit ihrer bizarren Fleischlichkeit fast schon anthropomorphe Züge: “I craft images that are simultaneously erotic and humorous, beautiful and repulsive”, wird Randall in diesem Artikel auf Flavorwire zitiert. Also Mund zu und Augen auf:

Randalls Statement:

Bubblegum initially connotes innocent, cheeky pleasure, yet the fragile skin of gum also points to the susceptibility of the body, and the dreaded passage of time. Bubble gum is an insignificant, disposable material, and the pleasure taken from its flavor is fleeting. The bubble is a vessel that holds our breath, for a brief moment, in a physical form. Seen as a group, the inflating/ deflating bubble imagery is a visual manifestation of breathing. They are decidedly anthropomorphic, and can appear abject, fragile, and as vulnerable as the human body.
