Eat Me Art: TALES ON SKIN by US photographer, Cameron Wolf
30 DEC – 2 FEB 2014
‘Tales on Skins’ was the latest solo exhibition of photographs by Cameron Wolf. The American photographer works as an advisor for the US Agency for International Development (USAID), working in the field of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. An established photographic artist, Wolf has exhibited extensively in the US, most recently his work was featured in Washington, DC at the 2012 International AIDS Conference. This was his fourth exhibition in Thailand. Proceeds from all sales were donated to SWING, a local Thai HIV foundation.
This exhibition showcased Wolf’s signature style of figurative photography of painted and tattooed bodies (skins), archetypes of black and white, tribal and adorned, sacred and profane. Veiled in various guises and ritualised actions, the images, taken in Bangkok, represent the mirrored positive and negative aspects of our psyches. Wolf’s photographs celebrate the cultural underground, featured in dark, mysterious and often iconic imagery seemingly from a new and profound mythology.
22 photographs printed on canvas from ‘Tales on Skins’ were on display at Eat Me Restaurant from December 30 2013 – February 2, 2014.
