Brilliant abstract portraiture from an artist named Kuinexi. This one in particular entitled “Portrait IV” is a great monochromatic triptych that’s created with oil on wood panels each 46x49cm each. You can be sure this won’t be the last time we post Kuinexi’s work.
Unfortunately, we don’t know too much about Thilo Heinzmann, his work or this series in particular. All we know is it’s oil pigment on canvas behind a plexiglass cover and we love its minimal aesthetic.
“My current body of work, “Sleeping Giants”, considers themes of identity and states of consciousness. The work within this body is made at a very large scale and includes portraits of people that are depicted in various states of sleep. I represent my subjects in this way to evoke a slight state of anxiety in my viewers. Rather than terrify or calm my audience, I want them to be unsure of what this giant is capable of doing should it wake up… Will this giant be gentle, would it be the type to bake me a cake on my birthday? Or will it be of the ultra-violent variety that would punch me in the gut and steal my wallet?” – Eric Pederson
