About the artwork
In this exclusive edition for Studio Voltaire, Celia Hempton has worked with the gay porn star and artist Colby Keller, who posed for the artist over a number of days during a visit to London. Hempton's strong distinctive palette is evident in her new edition. The artist worked with a master printmaker in London to produce this 15 colour etching.
About the artist
Celia Hempton’s art explores concepts of voyeurism in the post-digital age. In her paintings, performances and installations, the artist investigates the blurred lines of comfort and consent; desire and subjugation, visibility and opacity, seeking to deconstruct the ways in which we engage with each other in an evolving hyper-mediated age. Formally, Hempton’s paintings, which range in size from intimate to the life-size acknowledge the tropes of ‘history painting’ and the often subjugated female body. Hempton's richly layered paintings directly play and confront this historical dynamism, producing tactile celebrations of the body, as well as multiple perspectives on how the bodily gaze is constructed.
