Digital art is not always based on photography. Often when the technologies of new media are brought into direct conversation with photos, however, the source materials are borrowed from available popular culture to better add aspects of social critique to the aesthetic program. In the case of John Waiblinger, this dynamic exists along a continuum of pornography, romantic beauty, and the male as both the bringer and object of physical desire. Manipulating images borrowed from commercial homoerotica via considerable digital means, Waiblinger produces colorful, saturated, complex compound images festooned in evocative detail and intimate sensuality, implied nudity and sexual availability, shades of painterly art history, and a certain resignation to obeying the laws of attraction.
