The Silver Loo Gallery, exhibit no. 1: The body inescapable

Rinus Van de Velde

[A post i started in July and only now got around to finishing…]

I noticed there’s an alarmingly disproportionate amount of text on this blog compared to images, which i find ironic, because i’m a very much visually oriented person.  So i’ve decided to start a regular (monthly? quarterly?) feature in which i showcase some of the images i discover and appreciate in my daily web browsing and periodic gallery visits.  I’ve always dreamed of being a gallery curator, so this will be one way of living out that fantasy, if only virtually.  Although i anticipate sharing mostly images, anything non-textual is fair game.  Each exhibit will feature the work of six individuals, living or dead.

And with that, ladies and gentlemen, the opening exhibit of The Silver Loo Gallery:
