About The Artwork

Portrait is the image of the soul. I am a portraitist, what interests me is to capture the intensity of being, what emerges from this person. The photographs of the Indians are charged with a powerful emotion, to photograph an Indian means that it is already captured. It is made historical because it is part of history; It is the story of a people who fought for their freedom. In spite of this apparent defeat, there emerges a nobility from it which I try to transcribe pictorially. What pleases me in these portraits is the fact that they testify that one can be free in adversity. Gall. Born in South Dakota around 1840, Gall is a warlord of the Lakotas Hunkpapas tribe. A true warrior, he played a prominent role in the Battle of Little Big Horn alongside Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull. Finally, Gall no longer agrees with the beliefs of Sitting Bull, he decided to return to the United States with his people in 1880 in order to surrender, he converted to Christianity and became a judge of Indian affairs. Gall died at his home in the Standing Rock

Marc Carniel Calle Uruguay 3, PO3 402 portal D El Medano, tenerife 38612 ES +32486369506 Belgium Mobile : +32(0)486-36-95-06 Born 14th September 1963, artist painter, digital foto, drawings and videomaker Half Belgian and half Italian, Marc Carniel is a complex and controversial artist who employs is talents at the tipping point of safety and familiarity. By juxtaposing imagery of everyday situations and modern iconography in strange and unfamiliar contexts, his work aims to descontruct artificial paradigms created and portrayed throught modern day media.Thus sacred icons from our childhood such as Batman, snow white, Bambi, Hansel and gretel are thrown into realms of the lascivious, the corrupt and eerily unfamiliar and are depicted in grotesque, surreal or erotic contexts aimed at unsettling the viewer by their polarity to the assumed iconographic reality .Beside his multiple cultural references, his technique is multilayered and complex. Paintings, photography, digital works, videos, texts, installations and music are often mixed in his projects.Marc Carniels works have been shown regulary at the Brussel contemporary Art Fair .Alessandra Masolini ; Sharpcut Visual Arts Project
