Intimate and cathartic, Res’ photographic works reinvent what it means to have artistic agency. The concept of self-portraiture is made new in many of Res’ works. From their groundbreaking early works, such as Thicker than Water and The Others, Res provided a glimpse into the artist’s personal life and chilling stills inspired by growing up as a queer teenager. At the centre of Res’ artistic practice is the power to blur the boundaries between what is personal and what is public. “So much about the art is what is not shown,” Res said in an interview with Yael Malka. Rather than paint a clear picture, many of Res’ photographs are designed to obscure and omit. A void is given for the beholder to fulfill. Res splits their time between Stockholm and New York, using photography as a “projection of identify that we can never fully predict.”
