The greatest examples of photography blur the boundaries of reality. In Liquére (a title taken from the Latin verb meaning “to be fluid”), a new collection of nudes from Danny Eastwood, the body is submerged, refracted, arched and outstretched into lurid abstraction.
Presenting the human form with a sculptural sensibility that is rarely accomplished without a sense of irony, each work in this collection captures the perfect state of flux between the body and the water. The result is confounding, and beautiful.
A highly sought after photographer in the commercial world, this collection is an excellent example of Eastwood’s pure, untempered artistic abilities, which you still have time to catch at Sydney’s finest contemporary photography gallery. (AM)
