Luke Clayton Thompson - The Coded Body
Set within a hyperreal gallery space, surrounding objects pinpoint the key themes of the work: form, beauty, being and evolution. The body in code explores and subverts these conventions. Looking at the ciphers of the greeks who would disguise their political beliefs within works, here coded scripting conceals the male nude and warps it into a mythical being. Working in the same artistic vein as ancient civilisations, an effort to capture intangible myth within a visual form.
