Lampoon / Transition – Watercolors to showcase desire between bodies

«The potential eroticism implicit in nonhuman and human forms» underlining our attraction to shapes that surround us – Luca Longagnani

Maria Bremer on Luca Longagnani

His preoccupation with infrastructures and anatomies, or abstracted details thereof, reveals the potential eroticism implicit in nonhuman and human forms. In their quality of seductive, intangible afterimages, the watercolor sketches capture an initial visual stimulus, which – cropped and scaled – is brought into its definitive shape through subsequent iterations. Views of impersonal infrastructure, non-places, or serial products are turned into individualized subjects. The work titles further underline the private meaning attached to this image-production, already implicit in the use of watercolors. The rendering of the subject matter also emphasizes our attraction to certain shapes surrounding us – prompting us to wonder how desire moves between bodies.

Luca Longagnani artist

Born 1986 in Modena, Italy, he lives and works in Berlin. In recent years, he has been experimenting with watercolors, developing a range of motifs traversing and transgressing the genres of architecture representation and portraiture.
