Caroline Dejeneffe’s Under The Surface offers a number of first impressions through its bold composition. An immediate quality is the composition’s generous play with limited color. The minimalist, non-chromatic palette dominates the image with the stark black and white of the figure set against the muted grey background. Under The Surface vacillates between notions of mind and body. It suggests the possibility of psychological revelation, of both discovery and denial of deeper senses of identity, and of the vulnerability of being while reveling in sensation, touch and body awareness.

Caroline Dejeneffe is a French award-winning artist based in Los Angeles. She works across photography, installation and painting to create evocative and immersive projects that explore different aspects of the human experience.
