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, ensuring the ideal finish for the artworks on display. Paul selected Dibond mounting with an aluminium subframe for displaying his work.

Paul’s photography is the result of his passionate perception of the world, capturing it with the best of framing, lighting, and composition possible.
