The Movie “50 Shades of Grey” premiered last week. I did not read the books nor have I yet seen the film. But Heidi Popovic seems to get the idea. Or should I say, Christian Pölzler gets the idea?
Judith and Holofernes is a series of images dedicated to the relationship between Holofernes, the baby panda, and Judith, his … trainer.
No, I do not type “Or should I say, Christian Grey gets the idea?” I said Christian Pölzler – who is the alter ago of Heidi. Pölzler’s style covers a variety of themes and media. On one end of the spectrum, he designs intricate patterns with imbedded images that form wallpapers and carpets – reminiscent of William Morris, if Morris had been kinky. His graphics are typically brightly colored and highly stylized depictions that suggest a broader story of the characters. I keep thinking of Hello Kitty and Lisa Frank graphics – for adults.
Among the inventive wallpapers and carpets, my spouse loves the homage to William Tell, namesake of his hometown …
… but not so much the other choices for the carpet.
