BRINER HAUSER combines the black-and-white imagery of Timothy Briner and Thomas Hauser to form an elusive and often enigmatic dialogue concerning form and sexuality. Briner’s work comes from a new series of images that he has shot or manipulated over the last three years that mark a shift towards a more abstract non narrative understanding of form.
Thomas Hauser’s images come from two bodies of work separated by nearly 10 years. The first series of images shot in 2004 is loosely part of RAUCH / SMOKE a series which re framed existing dialogues about fetish and taboo. While the second series of works included are part of Hauser’s KUENSTLERINNEN and NUDES series shot in 2013-14. These series formalize many of the sexual elements that marked his earlier works and codify their form in increasingly systematic ways.
