When hands touch, moments of creation and action are opened.
Man Ray’s famous photographs and collages of hands stir feelings of touch and sensuality, and they even come across as a bit provocative in these times when physical intimacy can put humans at existential risk. The works of Man Ray remind us of how hands bring creative energy into the world. They express our intentions and needs. What we want, we grab. What we don’t, we push. Man Ray’s rayographs and silhouettes of hands reflect the human experience each one of us has every day.
