POETICS OF PERCEPTION
Now through April 19, 2015
The Brazilian-born Muniz is known for the startling materials he uses in the production of his stunning images. By employing diverse materials such as toys, diamonds, garbage and magazine clippings, the artist creates tableaux, which are then photographed. Poetics of Perception includes elements of several of his renowned bodies of work, including Diamond Divas, Pictures of Chocolate, Pictures of Junk, Pictures of Color and more.Using the same ideas and given access to thousands of diamonds, Muniz created dazzling portraits of Hollywood’s silver screen divas: Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Bette Davis and Marlene Dietrich. He tested the “degree of interference between the overkill glamour of the stars themselves and that of shiny rocks.” These mesmerizing portraits of some of the 20th century’s most celebrated actresses seem to cast a glittering, eternal afterimage.
