David Lynch, Digital Nudes

55 €

Experimenting with all forms of artistic creation, from painting to photography, from drawing to sound creation, David Lynch’s work appears to be the most protean of our time. In 2007, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presented the exhibition-event The Air Is on Fire, which unveiled Lynch’s photographic and pictorial work. Nearly fifteen years later, the Fondation Cartier will publish Digital Nudes, an exceptional collection of the artist’s photographs dedicated to female nudes, as a follow-up to Nudes, published in 2017.

Second installment of the Lynchian saga devoted to the photographic exploration of the female body, Digital Nudes brings together a corpus of previously unpublished digital images in line with the aesthetics of Nudes’ analog photographs, while experimenting with the possibilities offered by digital technology.

Kaleidoscopic visions of legs, arms, or undefined curves, chiaroscuro portraits, photographs of varnished nails and lacquered mouths... So many examples of David Lynch’s treatment of one of the greatest artistic subjects, the female nude, which here becomes an ode to femininity, an invitation to contemplation and creative freedom.

David Lynch

Filmmaker, photographer, painter, and designer, David Lynch (born 1946) creates polymorphic and dreamlike work. Through the multiplicity of his practices, he invents a mysterious, disturbing, strange, and poetic universe. Trained at the School of Fine Arts of Philadelphia, he has always devoted a large part of his creative activity to plastic arts, experimenting with all forms of creation. He has been known mainly as a film director and author of cult films as Blue Velvet (1986), Lost Highway (1997), and Mulholland Drive (2001), and the Twin Peaks series (1990–91; 2017).

“I started by painting. For me, painting is the most private activity in the world. You are alone. Film is the most public activity, we work as a team. And in between, there is photography.” David Lynch
