Jason Horowitz’s Corpus is an on-going exploration of people and the human form. The final exhibition prints are 42”x63” archival pigment prints that reveal a hyper-realistic amount of detail about the subject. The images explore the relationship between photographic representation and painterly abstraction, the formal elements in tension with the emotional content of the subject matter. The flesh depicted is simultaneously seductive and repulsive. Shot with the same “glamour” lighting set-up used for fashion images, these photographs subvert that process to look at what is real rather than ideal. Larger than life, these images become a vehicle for looking deeply at one’s self and others.
