Alena Schmick - Love Crash

Nov 16, 2022

During shows of strength bodies merge into sculptures. Reddened skin and

tense muscles, grasps and embraces, power and intimacy.


Are we seeing lovers or fighters? A couple or opponents?


My work Love Crash is a playful observation of the boundless

intensity of the human body. Through the use of close cropping, I

focus on the materiality of the skin. At the same time, the strength

of the subjects seems to break open the picture frame.
