Intimacy in Art

How do you represent intimacy in art? At a time when image and self-representation through media is standardized, we have forgotten the importance and beauty of controlled exposure. Intimacy in art becomes significant. The artist unveils partly his subject while keeping an element of mystery. These subtle and somewhat magical artworks play a beautiful game of hide and seek with the spectator leaving him free to use his own imagination and interpretation. One after the other, these artists explore unknown territory, challenge common beliefs and question identity. Artsper and its partner galleries have selected for you 10 intimate scenes for you to discover.
