Photographer Rankin launches new book and exhibition of stunning nudes blurring the boundaries of fashion, photography and fine art


Rankin blurs the boundaries of fashion, photography and fine art in Painting Pretty Pictures, a collection of painterly studies of feminine beauty. Using digital retouching as a tool for artistic effect, stunning nudes of some of the world's top models, including Yasmin Le Bon, Heidi Klum and Lily Cole, are transformed into apparent oil paintings. Always keen to explore the limits of his chosen medium, Rankin reframes the debate surrounding the use of digital image manipulation, creating a new hyperreal aesthetic that merges fantasy and reality. With Gerhard Richter amongst his inspirations, Rankin departs from his trademark style, creating images which seem almost classical through the use of the latest imaging technologies. Painting Pretty Pictures will run from 30th July — 29th August at Annroy Gallery, Rankin's own Kentish Town gallery space. The book is available from all good book stores and via www.turnaround-uk.com, priced £25.00.
