Desolation: Corpus Aliena – Paul Arion
Can void exist? London-based artist Paul Arion, the only Romanian with three Oscars in his resume, aims to answer this with his solo exhibition ‘Desolation: Corpus Aliena’.
The body of work is a direct representation of solitude, found within the nothingness of vast spaces without human life. How we feel isolated and insignificant in front of the bigger picture and the possibility of being on earth and not perceive earthiness. The Silence, the absence of noise and human interference, the confusion of scale and space. As the photographer states, the infinite space between atoms that creates the matter in the known universe can’t be compared to the emptiness of anything you see.
Metro were excited to work with Arion on this stunning collection of photographs to ensure the ideal finish for the artworks going on on display. Paul selected aluminium with Dibond subframe and mounting system for displaying his work.
Paul’s photography is the result of his passion for how he perceives the world and captures it with the best of framing, lighting, and composition.
