Julian Palast‘s photographic series Skindeep is described as a study on the body-object, ephemeral sculptures of the human form. Instant bas reliefs recalling of the classic imagery.
In fact, these images are not ‘classic’ at all. The plastic wrap looks up to date, even fashionable, as we’ve already seen many plasticized details in recent collections. I like the body connected with such an artificial medium and depicted in toxic colors. I think this is an interesting project, in both visual and conceptual terms.
