Über diesen Titel


"The photographs were taken at moments of extreme intimacy, featuring women in the throes of personal pleasure, and the act of painting over them could be seen as a form of concealment. Yet Leiter s brush acts as illumination rather than censorship, creating a riot of colour that heightens the beauty of these private moments, creating contemplation rather than mess. They speak to Leiter s love of colour at a time when it was still deemed inferior, clumsy even, in comparison to black and white. And they preserve the mystery that was at the heart of him as an artist and as a man."--Tish Wrigley "AnOther Magazine "" "The effect is of a turbulent maelstrom of color, created with impulsive, almost dancing brushstrokes. In these painted nudes, color seems to have been unleashed; it is a carnival, a riot, an irresistible force."--Mona Gainer-Salim "New Yorker " "The previously unseen images have been splashed with vibrant paints--adding life, color, and texture to the once monochrome collection of photographs. You can feel the energyoozing fromthe paintingsand sense the freedom Leiterfelt whenpassionately vandalizinghis own work and intriguinglymaking it greater."--Sacha Musgrove "IDOL "" "This new volume, a welcome addition to the Leiter canon, showcases a hitherto little-known aspect of his "oeuvre" the painted photograph. . . . From a subtle soaking of colour to a rapidly applied fiesta of brush strokes, the application of textured layers of vibrant pigment or translucent wash creates real emotional depth in the images. The sheer exuberance of creation is shown in his frequent reworking of the images (sometimes over decades). Leiter s reworkings also reveal his tenderness towards the photographed subjects."--Roy Clark "Cassone ""
