Eye Candy/ Ögongodis Exhibition Granö

This spring I have made a series of studies from male nudes with models mainly recruited from 'Legendary Gym' in Umeå, a body builder hangout. I've also delved into historical representations of the male nude in sculpture and painting. A selection of the resulting work: straight up studies of the male form as well as looser improvisations around male attributes - are now up at Sjungaregården by Granö Beckasin until the 7th of July. The exhibition is presented to give a studio feel, with a leather armchair in the middle customised to the shape of a male torso. 

Special thanks to all the hunks who modelled for me over the course of the project and to Nya Makeriet for their help. 




Swedish intro of exhibition: "I utställningen Eye Candy/Ögonfröjd i övre boden på Sjungaregården presenterar Dimitriou en serie nya verk. Våren 2021 har hon utfört modellstudier av kroppsbyggare och atletiska män. Utifrån konkreta och precisa observationer har hon sedan improviserat fram former och kompositioner. Syftet är att presentera en visuell buffé av atletiska kroppar och att undersöka attributen i ett skönhetsideal."
