Marks of Distinction


$60.00

By Karen Knorr.

Documenting the socially rigid, elite English society of the 1980s, Karen Knorr's ravishingly beautiful, formally composed images are deliberately, intoxicatingly ambiguous. Comprised of four sequences - Belgravia, Gentlemen, Country Life and Connoisseurs - Knorr's sardonic approach to her subject-matter is at once critical and awestruck, distant and sensual, yet with a humorous undercurrent. As outsiders, the 'tasteful' excess of the obscenely wealthy, has always been supremely fascinating and repulsive; and it's this emotional discomfort that interest Knorr too.
