Yoga Photograms includes of eight life-size works from the pair’s recent series of photogram portraits exploring a range of traditional Sanskrit yoga postures.

 

The meditative series investigates both the experiential nature of achieving each position as well as the technical transformation of the visual image. The Carters are continually expanding the boundaries of their fine art practice, swinging between new cutting edge digital technologies and traditional analogue mediums, including neon light drawings, luminograms, moving image, 3D scanning and naturalistic sculpture – each allow the viewer to absorb and reinterpret compelling subject matter in an exciting and innovative way.

 

‘Yoga has a close but complex relationship with images of the body. It’s growth in popularity over the last hundred years, during which it has gone from being an esoteric method of spiritual development to a hugely popular global phenomenon practised in a myriad of ways. Modern Yoga has been made possible by the accelerating ease with which images of it’s practice can be shared, from roughly printed pamphlets to perfect Instagram poses, the medium of transfer has both spread and changed the practice.’

Dr. Jim Mallinson

Senior lecturer in Sanskrit and Classical and Indian studies
at S.O.A.S., University of London

 

Rob and Nick Carter pay homage to the holistic eastern practice in their hauntingly beautiful forms, each non-manipulated work is a direct result of the weight and direction of the model’s movement across the light in the darkroom and the photographic paper. An evolving and unpredictable process that is just as compelling in its performative language as it is in the final print result.
