Disportraits by Matthias Schaller

Matthias Schaller‘s series of Disportraits currently at Ben Brown Fine Arts, London. Stunning.

As with all my series, the leading argument is the variation on portrait. I had the sensation that I could try to either make portraits of mankind, or of individuals. I liked the idea of having a connection between the individual and space, (in this case the prominent figure of Galileo), and with suits in a more abstract sense, as you can only imagine a human figure in the astronaut suit, but you cannot see it. It is anonymous.

Via we make money not art.
