Oliver Cain is an English born/New Zealand Artist. His artworks, subverted linguistic paintings, ceramic sculptures and installations, bear a certain physicality and push the boundaries between conceptualism and post-pop art.
In this series of work, Cain has turned an erogenous zone such as the nipples into pliable and universal material: spray-painted in different flashy colors and framed in an old-school wooden frame, their design remodels the complexities we face around certain parts of our body into a performative, even appreciative act. The framed nipple opens the door to a revived discussion on the convention of the beauty and sex(iness) and offers a new vision of the human body: imperfect, irregular, in constant evolution and dissolution but enchanting.
