In 1984 Hubert Schmalix left Austria for the Philippines, where his subject matter became focused on the female nude presented with a flattened decorative style reminiscent of Neo-Impressionism with a nod to Pop Art. Schmalix has updated these now considered to be classical styles with an interest on bondage rituals in the tradition of Nobuyoshi Araki, the Japanese photographer well known for such subject matter.
With this exhibit at 1335MABINI: Zn, Hubert Schmalix returns to the Philippines featuring works of great excitement.
