  15. The Muse in Art

    The almost immortalized idea of the artistic muse is a subject that the young photographer Cyrus Mahboubian (British, 1986) explores with burning interest in his latest body of work, which is on view in the eponymous exhibition at De Re Gallery, starting today. His manner of exploration is inherently avant-garde. So far, Mahboubian has managed to steer clear of using digital photography. He prefers to use film and Polaroid cameras to capture pieces of the world. This fact alone make his work deeply poetic. To add to this poeticism is his fascination with the idea of the muse. For this series of work, Mahboubian chose British actress Kasia Briars as his muse and took her to different parts of the English landscape to capture her in various idyllic settings.In this way, the English landscape is a secondary muse. The combination of landscape and figuration makes these works highly lyrical and reminiscent of an ether world, reverting back to a world that his almost completely mythological and where muses are the only source of inspiration.

    We would be remiss not to mention these other great exhibitions opening today!
