*An Iconography of Desire

 

John Waiblinger is a new media artist who explores masculinity and desire through his Post Photography compositions. Hailing from an academic background with degrees in English, Women's Studies and Library Science, Waiblinger redefined himself as an artist in his early 60's, first exhibiting work at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts.

 

The Beauty of Men* (an iconography of desire) is Waiblinger's first solo show, appropriately taking place at the gallery in which he first showed his work. His work presents men he has appropriated via their pornographic performance and reconstructs then within the realm of his imagination.These images combined with his own photographs portray a masculinity that celebrates softness and intimacy that he believes creates a tension between the normative and the transgressive. Waiblinger states that his intent is "to investigate and illustrate how such juxtaposition can broaden perceptions and understanding of masculinity."

 

Waiblinger uses his fixation on the beauty of men to transfigure the carnal into his own embodiments of adoration and celebration.

 

BIO:

John Waiblinger is a new media artist who explores masculinity and desire through his Post Photography compositions. Hailing from an academic background with degrees in English, Women's Studies and Library Science, Waiblinger redefined himself as an artist in his early 60s, first exhibiting his work at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA) in 2014. Since then he has continued to exhibit in galleries and has established a small group of collectors. His most recent work was a collaborative installation project with artist Sean Yang at the Cerritos College Fine Arts Department focused on the "coming out process". Waiblinger is a member artist of LACDA and was accepted as a member of the Los Angeles Art Association this year.
