Dominique Paul’s real time art, video documents and C-Print photos play with fashion and mythology to create an art of engagement that subtly captures aspects of fashion and converts these into a hypothetical mythology.
Art becomes a vehicle for expressing the interface between new technologies, the atomization of the human identity, and the ambiguities of identity that have arisen from this.
As intricate photographs Paul’s build their imagery using real life personages, layering projections of images on the body. We see the artist dressed as a fashion DIVA wearing a shiny reflective costume in Atlantic City in the night while a far off casino building advertises sand sculptures of dinosaurs. The artist carries a spear and stands like a heroic and potentially feminist version of Prometheus.
Dominique Paul’s art examines the sexual and public persona of our times with great intensity. Here is an art where place, identity, and the human presence are set out of context. Dominique Paul uses these devices to describe the locus of our desire, in a world where globalization affects all of us. Dominique Paul's multi-media production exists at the nexus of our very visual new media culture.
