Sunday Evening Art Gallery on Friday — Oleg Dou

When you first look at Oleg Dou‘s  work, you may think…..no.

The monochromatic look, the androgynous style, is something strange and unusual.But take a moment and look closer.Dou transforms photographic images of human faces, manipulating them with computer software to produce stylized features and airbrushed skin.Dou is interested in producing images that are both alluring and unsettling.“I am looking for something bordering between the beautiful and the repulsive, living and dead,” he has said. “I want to attain the feeling of presence one can get when walking by a plastic manikin.”

    1. I agree. When I first came across this artist, I wondered…is this art? Do these portraits add to the accumulation of art through the centuries? There was something about their porcelain looks that hooked my interest. Not that I’d hang this portrait on my wall… just another expression of non-conformity. I so appreciate your comment.
