I wanted to post this quite some time ago but lost the story between all the others on my desktop. If you’re in Geneva these days this is a must see. The solo show by Robert Longo at Galerie Saks (until november the 7th). The work of Robert Longo is often described as dark, violence and destructive and because of his defined use of charcoal on big sized paper it looks almost photographic and cinematic. The drawings explore the iconography of popular culture accompanied with scenes from nature (like above’s Et In Arcadia Ego) – makes me think of the pictures on Hedi Slimane’s fashion diary.
