Oleg Dou’s Stirring Photo Manipulations

by Andy SmithPosted on

Oleg Dou’s photo manipulations subvert the elegance of classical still-life or mutate the subjects of his quiet portraits. The award-winning artist, hailing from Russia, has shown these creations in shows across the globe. Recent work takes the everyday table settings of the Renaissance and stirs sexualized conversations.

“In his work, the border between painting and photography disappears,” Galeria Senda says. “His work presents creatures that look like porcelain without life. Each portrait, digitally retouched, transmits a hermeticism that forces the spectator to look past the softly polished skin of his models. Lover of Japanese minimalism, Dou knows how to generate atmospheres of high visual tension.”
