William Farges. The deconstructed nude

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In his two series of works (White Line and Chimères (Imagination)) the French artist William Farges strips the body of its human features. By deconstructing it and fusing the parts in a manner that resembles a mystifying puzzle, the human body is totally transformed, becoming an object subdued to a new symmetry and meaning.

“My intention is not to cultivate individual fantasies, but a reflection on the relationship between body and mind. The strength of my work is I think in its suggestive appearance. Indeed, by combining two images taken at two different times and without artifice, without editing, the viewer unconsciously accepts it and sees my body perception,” states William Farges.
