About Infanta (Tattoo)
The abstraction of the model's back in Infanta (Tattoo), whose identity is obscured by the shadows engulfing her head, creates a tension between appreciation and objectification of the female body. However, Gibson's treatment of the woman also has a soft touch, while the tattoo on her back, the symbol for the Leo Zodiac, complements her sensuous curves.Read Less
About the Artist
About Ralph Gibson
His photographs, then and now, exude tension and barely contained energy. By turns sexual, disquieting, and surreal, each image is a narrative unto itself. His image Nude With Feather is one of the most coveted nude image on the art market today. The recipient of countless awards, including a fellowship from the prestigious John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation in 1985 and two honorary doctorates, Gibson continues to inspire younger photographers with international exhibitions and more than 40 publications.Read Less
