The Model Studies are the result of a residency at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles where Thomas Demand discovered the archive of the celebrated architect John Lautner (1911–94). This is the first time that Demand has photographed models that are not his own. The lines, planes, textures and colors he composes from the models recall Modern painting and sculpture, including Picasso’s reliefs, as well as mid-20th century abstract painting.
