The sexy art works of Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh.

Today is Monday, it’s raining, it’s cold, trains were delayed this morning (again!), no time for breakfast, oyster cards top up machine were broken,… so in order to change our minds, let’s share the highly sexy works born of the collaboration of the artists Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh.

Cooperation between artists is already rather unusual in the art field, but here, works are travelling back and forth between their separated studio where they simultaneously reveal and conceal each other’s images.

In this fusion, we still recognise the sensibility and vision of each artist : Ghada already famous for exploring gender and female sexuality in her art, and Reza for the natural elements.

Plus, this mix of sexy female figures with cartoon characters, Hindu deities, passages of Arabic scripts (Ghada is born in Egypt and Reza in Iran), patterns of flowers… reveals also a superb intermingling between East and West.

Happy Monday ! 🙂
