On the fortieth anniversary of Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard’s romantic union, this volume traces four decades of artistic collaboration between the photographer and painter known as Pierre et Gilles. This year-by-year retrospective of their vast oeuvre, accompanied by an incisive essay by art critic Éric Troncy, showcases the genesis and development of their sublime, audacious, and explicitly confected fusion of photography and painting.
Highly sophisticated and shamelessly sexy, their art—stylized, idealized painted photographs—synthesizes tropes drawn from celebrity and mainstream gay culture with timeless themes of religion, mythology, and beauty, and many works feature international stars including Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue, Karl Lagerfeld, Mick Jagger, and Iggy Pop.
The book is available in a trade edition and in a limited art edition of 200 copies that features a signed and numbered limited edition print created especially for the book and presented in a deluxe clamshell case.
"Pierre et Gilles: 40...provides a year-by-year retrospective of the photographer and painter's oeuvre. It explores how their art--stylised painted photographs--mixes celebrity and gay culture with themes of religion, mythology and beauty, with subjects including Madonna, Iggy Pop, Naomi Campbell and Mick Jagger." --Jocks & Nerds
"Pierre et Gilles: 40 The tome itself tackles the duo s extensive oeuvre year by year along with an insightful essay by art critic and curator Éric Troncy from their first painted portraits of scantily clad models in the late 70s (in addition to well-known faces like Mick Jagger, Salvador Dalí and Iggy Pop) to their later work with international pop culture superstars as wide-reaching as Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Karl Lagerfeld and Kylie Minogue. --Unicorn Booty
