The Stand, Samburu, Kenya

The Stand, 2017 from the Lost Series by Arno Elias is an Archival pigment print hand embellished with acrylic paint, gold and silver leaf, and diamond dust.  It is signed, dated, and numbered on the front from the edition of 17.  The Lost Series is a crystallization of Arno Elias’ mixed-media techniques and the powerful images he captured during his solo world photographic tour.

The artist presents the medium of hand-painted photography as a means of engaging philosophical disquisitions on culture, humankind, and wildlife inspired by his diverse experience and extensive traveling across various continents. This selection of Elias’ work reflects the artist’s wishes to maintain the cultural originality and indigenous values that are or to be “lost” in the wake of globalization and industrialization. From the faces of the Mursi tribe of Ethiopia to endangered animals in Kenya’s savannah, Elias’ subjects captured spontaneous and serendipitous are portrayed in full-length or three-quarter views, evoking a delicate artificiality. His images with fine detail and rich tonality resonate with a sense of nostalgia and compelling emotion. Incorporating the act of hand painting to build a sense of connection to his subjects, the artist creates multiple layers of narratives, rigorously investigating the most fundamental and intrinsic aspect of human experience, nature and culture.
