Stavros at the Beach, (2016)
Digital Chromogenic Development Print
15 x 11-1/4 inches
Chris Komater’s series “Stavros at His Bath” draws inspiration from 19th century paintings of women at their toilets. Sharing the intimate moments in Stavros’ day, but obliterating details of personality of identity, Komater asks his viewers to fill in the details, frustrating our voyeuristic impulses, and sidestepping comparisons with, and critiques of, this particular body. In an age of accessible images of nakedness and the ubiquity of selfies, he seeks to distract us from the nude form and focuses our attention instead on how we look at it. What exactly do we want to see?
