Teiji Hayama’s ‘Infantarivm’

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Japanese artist Teiji Hayama, (whom we recently featured here) has recently opened a solo exhibition of new work, ‘Infantarivm’ at Gallery Krisstel Martin in Singapore. Featuring the isolated, elfin like beauty that obsessively populates his conjured world, his new work shrouds ‘her’ in a sullen darkness, further illuminating the glow of her pale skin. In brighter works, she is paired with a lamb or haloed, confrontational yet demure gaze and oddly proportioned features echo how females were oft depicted nude during the18th century, adding an element of the old world to his work.  View more images from ‘Infantarivm’ below.
