Who is Ariane Lopez-Huici?

Ariane Lopez-Huici is a photographer living between New York and Paris. Her work has been successfully presented internationally in institutions - Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno, Spain, Musee de Grenoble, France, PS1-Moma, USA, French Institute New York, USA, among many others - as well as galeries - AC Project room, NY, Galerie Franck, Paris -. She has received a strong critical interest from prominent art historians and writers, such as Arthur Danto, Edmund White, Yannick Haenel, Julia Kristeva and Carter Ratcliff. Lopez-Huici’s work is focused on the human body, constantly transgressing conventional canons of beauty. To accentuate the shadowy areas of the human adventure, she uses black and white photography marked with a pronounced grain and deep blacks. Her series Aviva, Dalila, and Holly show her passion for Rubenesque bodies. Her African series Adama&Omar and Kenekoubo Ogoïre reveal her interest for any kind of physical and sensual expression. The series Rebelles and Triumph deal with a group of voluptuous women asserting their majesty. And her most recent series Priscille, nude portraits of a handicapped model, affirms, in the tradition of Rodin, the true beauty and personality of the fragmented body. Her images, as art critic David Cohen puts it, “convey a sense of the body as lived-in, actual and present.” Lopez-Huici, as Francis Marmande says “illuminates the model, gives her the strength to transgress what we see or what we do not see.”
