Bill Durgin

The human form has been a hallmark in the art world since man first started pressing his hands against cave walls.  But Bill Durgin’s photographic studies of the body work to separate identity from flesh.  His models contort themselves away from his lens until all that remains is a severed torso, a composite of muscle, a hunk of meat on the floor.  Subtracting a few limbs renders the models almost inanimate, they become a collection of sensuous contours instead of a collective individual.  Funny how easily ones identity can be removed.
