Dutch artist SIT has been part of the Amsterdam creative scene for many years. In his first US exhibition “NOIR“, at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Los Angeles, SIT examines the “troubled relation between the animal kingdom and mankind” and focuses on the “magnificent beauty of the beast and the way it is used to serve the vanity that is intricate to humanity.”
In a bold black and white palette, NOIR is a “haunting series that is simultaneously sexy and morbid. The sensual textures of fur and feathers are juxtaposed with pale animal skulls and soft female curves – representing the perverse ‘need’ to strip animals of their skins, and exposing the disturbing reality of the suffering and extinction of species to satisfy human narcissism.”
NOIR runs through May 7, 2011. To see more, visit SIT.com.
