BOOKS GUIDO ARGENTINI

EROS

Eros, erotic, eroticism are just some of the countless words whose original meaning have been forgotten.
In common language they are used to describe something that may cause sexual desire. For the collective imagination an erotic image is distinguished from a pornographic one only for a conceptuality hidden behind it and for having been performed in a more elegant manner.
In reality the concept of Eros is totally different and much deeper.

PRIVATE ROOMS

Daring and provocative, these images of the female nude challenge the viewer to defy limits and enter “forbidden territory.” Argentini plays with our notions of privacy and constructs a hidden erotic universe where it is hard to know what we will find—our deepest erotic fantasies or a parallel reality? These charged erotic images are both sophisticated and raw, with a dark glamour all their own.

ARGENTUM

In 1995, photographic master Guido Argentini was moved to coat a model in silver makeup. The shiny silver paint transformed the models: dancers, gymnasts and aerialists into metallic statues, into new beings that became almost liquid like under the studio lights. Evoking the luminous polished planes of the work of Brancusi and the verve of Degas’ ballet sketches, these photographs endow the human body with both the solidity of sculpture and the vivid energy of dance. Using geometrical props Guido Argentini created a contrast between the human body and the archetypal forms of geometry: triangles, circles and squares. The final result of many years of work is this book: 

Argentum.

A collection of more than 100 stunning photographs. Argentum is a book but is also a movie, a documentary that reveals. The concepts that are behind the making of this book: Argentini’s esthetic of the human form and the skills of the athletes that posed for these photographs.

SHADES OF A WOMAN

Shades of a Woman is Guido Argentini’s fourth’s book. The book is divided in 6 chapters, two in Black and white and four in color. The photographs were taken indoor and outdoor all over the world. In his new book Guido Argentini began exploring different levels and nuances of the female nature. The images are telling a story in one single picture, like single frames taken from a movie. Women, photographed in USA, Thailand, Italy and Cuba, in abandoned houses, in palaces and hotels, Replica Hublot Watches For Sale are still the source of inspiration of Guido Argentini’s photographs. Argentini’s aim is that women – the muses who have guided him along his path-up until now- being the subjects of his pictures or even simply those who witness his photos, can identify themselves in these stories.

REFLEECTIONS

When we look in a mirror, we consider who we are, and who we want to be. These female nudes from the master of erotic photography challenge our perception of what is real and what is not. Argentini skillfully plays with mirrors to achieve unusual perspectives. The resulting images combine come-hither sensuality with sophisticated distance.

With all this posturing and roleplay, who knows what will happen next? Decide for yourself who is the fairest of them all.

SILVEREYE

Perfect bodies with smooth, shimmering skin, in flowing motion, not looking, embedded in rarefied landscapes—and yet filled with profound humanity. Guido Argentini, who is equally at home in the United States and in Italy, takes photographs that reflect his search for truth and emotions.

In een bespiegeling over zijn werk zei Joop Polder eens: ‘Al mijn schilderijen hebben voor mij de titel “de droom” ’. In de titels zelf komt het woord droom nooit voor. Zij verwijzen naar een station, een gracht, een tramtoren, een enkele tram of spreken van een late namiddag, een uitzicht of stilte. Het werk is figuratief: alles is herkenbaar en alles is imaginair; zijn stadsgezichten, zijn duinen en zee, zijn trams bestaan alleen in zijn werk. ‘Ik zoek in mijn schilderijen een verdroomde wereld vol warmte en veiligheid’. In deze wereld is het stil, de beweging heeft zich teruggetrokken. Dit boek is deel 24 van de serie Haags Palet uitgegeven door de Stichting Haagse Beeldende Kunst en Kunstnijverheid.

 

In tuin van de gesoigneerde, typisch Haagse kunstschilder 1939) bloeien geen bloemen maar staan een tram en een muziekstandaard. Joop Polder schilderde een gedroomde wereld met uitzichten op een station, een terras, de duinen en de zee, altijd uit zijn verstrooide verbeelding en toch heel herkenbaar. Geen spoor van een verfgebaar, slechts de tonen van het licht, van kleur en schaduw toveren een vervreemde architectuur met loepzuivere elementen van klassieke zuilen samen met metalen bruggen en chique trams en een net echt half gevuld wijnglas op het bordes. Dat alles is verbonden door typerende perspectiefwisselingen. De metafysische schilders deden het Joop Polder voor. Bij zijn 70e verjaardag, begin 2009, kwam het idee op voor dit innemende boekje met afbeeldingen van vooral na de jaren negentig. Een conservator van het Haags Gemeentemuseum beschrijft de ontwikkeling van leven en werk, even helder maar wel verifieerbaar, als de schone schijn. Een biografie, tentoonstellingslijst en enige gememoreerde publicaties besluiten dit deel in de serie Haags Palet. Echt een delicatesse voor Hagenezen.
