David Meskhi Photographs Gestures of the Human Body
Within this newest body of works, Georgian artist David Meskhi aims to capture the idealised moment of human gesture and sublime beauty. Religious ecstasy, homoerotic connotations and the gender fluidity of the male body in its transformative years brings us to a combination of heavenly and earthly states of being. The bodies, not yet ingrained with social definitions of gender, fall into a more natural setting of finer tones of masculine and feminine energies. Universal bodies who in turn reach out to the cosmos to assert their presence. The subject matter becomes the most important - not narrowly gender related, but rather humanistic as the work delivers a strong juxtaposition of defiance verses compliance
David Meskhi's exhibition Allow is currently on view at Galerie Kornfeld.
