BIOGRAPHY

Born in Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Lives & works in Amsterdam

 

In the last years, Brigitte Vincken’s work has been branching out from the fashion field, now exploring the territory where the worlds of art, fashion and graphics collide.

From the start, her focus has been on the male form and how to capture sensuality in black & white and color photography. The male models, antique sculptures, athletes, performers and dancers all become raw materials as part of her ongoing research to superimpose the contemporary on the classical. This dialogue has been picked up by galleries, curators and art professionals, revealed by shows in Rome, Basel, Trieste and Argentina.
