Hard Back book
A Retrospective of Work by Danish Photographer, Lasse Hoile. Exploring his incredible body of work, including his noted and long term collaborations with Steven Wilson. Foreword by Carl Glover Best known for his long term visual collaboration with progressive-music icon Steven Wilson, Flood Gallery Publishing present a collection of his best work from this unique and acclaimed visual artist. Unburdened by the classical de 64257;nition of what constitutes beauty, Lasse Hoile portrays the human condition seen from the id, with its subconscious fears brought to the surface and revealed in plain sight. A place we are more familiar with via the work of Francis Bacon and Goya rather than someone working within more mechanical means. What makes Lasse atypical is that he works in a commercial environment, producing something which may be art, but always with a client at the other end making the ultimate decision. It's a hard place to inhabit as the tastes of commercialism tend to mirror whatever is fashionable within the genre. Fortunately, he works with sympathetic patrons and has more freedom to explore than most photographers in his 64257;eld. Lasse Hoile's world is crepuscular, twilit, with 64258;ashes of viscera. His newer work explores 64258;uorescent colours but grounded in human fever-dreams a claustrophobic nightmare psychedelia, a vivid void made real. Images from his noted collaborations with Steven Wilson will be familiar to many. Portraits also goes outside to other assignments, giving a partial glimpse in to an immense body of incredible work. Lasse Hoile (born 1973 in Aarhus, Denmark) is an artist, photographer and film maker.
