Nick Flatt
Texas-born Nick Flatt is known for his large scale photorealistic portraits, often with provocative themes gleaned from titles like Fuck Religion, Pussy Fingers, and Nip Slip. Through the use of models who physically resemble the prototype of those commonly used in mainstream advertising, Flatt whets the viewer’s unconscious appetite for consumption. However, their extreme, lascivious gestures distort our desire to the point of discomfort. By exposing the cheap triggers employed by these glossy glamazons, Flatt invites us to be repulsed by their honest unmasking.
