For The Love Of The Figurine
The Porcelain Sculptures of Chris Antemann through the Lens of Kendrick Moholt
by Chris Antemann and Kendrick Moholt
Inspired by 18th C. porcelain figurines, Chris Antemann’s work employs a unity of design and concept to examine and parody male/female relationship roles. Characters and incidents build upon each other, forming a language that speaks about domestic rites, social etiquette, and taboos. Classic and romantic themes get a contemporary edge; elaborate dinner parties, picnic luncheons and festive celebrations set the stage for her twisted tales to unfold. Fine art photographer, Kendrick Moholt, instills the figures with their own lives via unique crops, perspectives and portrait angles that project the figures onto a human scale.
Kendrick Moholt is a fine art photographer who has also worked as a field biologist for more than thirty years throughout all seven continents.
