The wildly talented Peruvian based artist Christian Fuchs and I spent a perfect autumnal Sunday this past weekend, strolling amidst the leaves in Central Park where he snapped this lovely portrait.

Over a fortifying brunch at Orsay, Fuchs shared his latest projects and ventures. He’s been quite busy in fact since the WIJW piece we did on him in 2011, with exhibitions at Pulse Miami, Scope Miami, and a handful of other art fairs including ARTBO: the Feria Internacional de Arte de Bogotá. He’s had exhibitions in Germany, Iran, Croatia, Costa Rica, and has shown at the Museum of Fine Arts in Santiago de Chile!

Imbued with a thick atmosphere of highly expressive nostalgia that verges on the surreal, Fuchs’ heavily manipulated work harks back to the turn of the century experiments in Pictorialism championed by such photographic groups as the Photo-Secessionists led by Stieglitz. Certainly there is more than a touch of German Romanticism to Fuchs’ aesthetic as well!

The classic Fuchs portrait of me (top) conveys an interesting Bavarian / gothic revival sort of vibe I think. I’m wearing a vintage Lodenfrey loden cape, amber wool and silk challis paisley scarf, Uniqlo brown cashmere turtleneck sweater and slim jeans, Tom Ford brown leather tasseled loafers, vintage Rolex and my fragrance is Tom Ford, Oud.

    My Darling Mara ,

    “Other Wordly” is certainly one of my favorite ways to describe Fuchs’ works.

    These highly romanticized images would certainly raise the level of most interiors to the sublime!

    Cheers
