Lot Details

"Untitled (Lizard and Orchid)" (c. 1990) is a stunning gelatin silver print by Japanese Contemporary photographer Nobuyoshi Araki. Image dimensions: 15.86 x 12.67 inches (40.3 x 32.2 cm). Unframed, in excellent condition, bordered by an archival white matte. This visually arresting image of a dead lizard contrasted with an orchid in full bloom unflinchingly explores sexuality and the transience of life. Araki's two most prevalent motifs from nature are the protagonists here--lizards and flowers. This photograph was acquired directly from the artist at Galerie Mikael Andersen, Copenhagen, Denmark in 2008 by present Private Collector, Europe.
