Antony Crossfield - Foreign Body

When photomanipulation supports a strong, deep and powerful idea such as the one in this series of Antony Crossfield, thus this technique adds to the richness of the work and may lead to something of a masterpiece. Difficult not to be moved in your innermind if, like me, you sometimes feel quite near to become schizophrenic, and to have at least 2 (sometimes more) yourself coexisting in you. Here, bodies are visually both intricated and separated, and the impression seeing these pictures is not far from the one you have when you feel torn apart between 2 different feelings, motivations, envies. Antony Crossfield is a great artist. From UK. The proud descendant of Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. Only with photography in place of painting. His site here.
