Sage Vaughn and Michael Muller @ The Outsiders, London

Juxtapoz // Saturday, 15 Oct 2011

Sage Vaughn, whom we featured in our June 2011 issue (we even did our entertaining video with Mr. Vaughn a few months back, and some people didn't get it), continues his busy year with Opposing Instincts, a collaborative show with Michael Muller at the Lazarides Outsiders space in London. The exhibition features Sage painting over Muller’s photos, creating a "whole that’s greater even than the sum of these particular parts."

Here is what Sage Vaughn has to say about the show: 

“I was introduced to Muller in Malibu by a good friend. He told me about a project he had been working towards down in Mexico: great white sharks, underwater lighting systems, cages, it all sounded incredible.

“We'd meet and talk about life, art, waves... One day he asked if I wanted to get some paint on one of the photos he took of the sharks. When I looked at those shots for the first time, my jaw dropped. I’ve been obsessed with sharks since I was a little kid, and even more so since I started surfing, but I had never seen shark images like these. Mike had taken such a different approach to portraying these amazing animals. The amount of character contained in these creatures’ faces was so beautiful, I couldn’t help but be inspired. When our first collaborative piece was finished we knew we were really on to something...”
