New Striptiz portrait – Vasja Nagy
Well for this project I was thinking to make something with the sea and a gallery. Either to bring a seaside scene into the gallery or to bring a gallery out to the seaside. In my mind I browsed through many versions of this situation, but nothing was really striking. When I was working on a new coverpage of Mladina weekly I pulled out from my storage room a background that was deep blue – sort of an abstract sea.
I was thinking to make a picture with a normal sea, it’s abstract picture and an art critic. I was trying all sorts of scenarios trying to make it work, but it was really difficult. The hardest was to make it clear and obvious the sea and it’s abstract version. And then I had another problem of a person that is interacting with a canvas, but I not shot in the back.
Anyhow I’ve select out this three pictures and I’ll see what you have to say about it. In the worst case I’ll use the portrait without the canvas. It’s out of the Striptiz concept, but it’s OK nevertheless.
