Gerard Schlosser’s Intimate, Hyperrealistic Paintings of the Body

Note: Contains nudity.

Gerard Schlosser is a French artist who paints hyperrealistic images of body parts. He takes photographs and then isolates a part of the scene, such as an exposed breast or waist. Each painterly fragment is mysterious, and Schlosser has a way of instilling intimacy into surprising places. What is left outside the frame is filled in by the viewer’s own memories of stillness, contemplation, and connection.
