Alvin Booth is a New York based artist, originally from Hull England.
His work revels both in the intrinsic beauty of the human form, and in the mutations of that beauty. Using the body’s malleability and gravity as a palate, Booth creates a landscape that is at times attractively familiar and at times seductively surreal.
Booth’s sumptuous photographs use the nude as a point of departure. Bodies are pulled, folded, sheathed, multiplied and wrapped to produce images that prove the body capable of being erotically charged as well as playfully comic.
A recent shift to more sculptural work builds on the nontraditional representations of the nude that began as photographs. Booth’s three-dimensional work embraces even more experimental and evocative materials. Silicone, light, 3D braille printing, sensors and even scent are utilized to create new interpretations of the body.
